Item Details

Earth in the Hot Seat is a stunning, magazine-like presentation that celebrates the Earth and clearly explains the dangers and challenges of global warning. This beautiful volume is also a showcase for National Geographic Society's environmental mission programs. Librarians and teachers will appreciate a book that explains the science of this global threat succinctly and visually, and is a call-to-arms to help the Earth. Readers will enjoy many fun features, from climate connections in global hotspots, to amazing before and after snapshots, to questionnaires answered by climate scientists and celebrities. The look of Earth in the Hot Seat is modeled on National Geographic Magazine design, with superb photography taking the reader to the heart of the matter.

The text explores both global and local approaches to climate change, with personal accounts and real-life stories. The book also includes a quiz and tips on how to calculate and reduce your personal carbon footprint. Award-winning author Marfé Ferguson Delano combines beautiful writing, scientific explanation, and long experience of the National Geographic Society to produce an outstanding environmental book for children.
