Item Details

One of England's most talented young comic artists offers up a scathingly funny and carefully researched exploration of climate change, presenting it to readers through the eyes of an idealistic adolescent, a fat cat businessman, and a mad scientist. The book explains the science behind global warming, shows how it is progressing, and says what is being and not being done to stop the problem. Detailed references, suggestions for further reading, and lists of climate change organizations and websites open up possibilities for future exploration by readers, while the comic book format piques the interest of even the most reluctant.

Although it's based as a anime style book (comic strip) I still found the information inside on climate change issues very useful. Also, enjoyed the ways that we as serious "environmentalists" can reduce our carbon footprint by following a few simple steps.
Read this book...save our planet!!
