Summary

Understand the facts about climate change and discover what we can do to improve the human impact on our environment.

In 2019, kids around the world are going on strike for the future of the planet, and for their own futures. The British and Irish governments have become the first in the world to declare a climate emergency. Climate change is now one of the biggest issues we face as a society.

This book lays out the science behind a natural process that has been massively sped up by humans. It explains the different ways in which we have caused the climate to heat up, from traffic pollution to animal farming, and the widespread effects of this change.

The book covers what we can do to help prevent further, damaging changes to the climate, both in our everyday lives and as potential activists. This timely entry into the award-winning DKfindout! series explores the past, present, and future of our climate. It covers key developments such as the industrial revolution, the advent of plane travel, and climate activism, from the People's Climate March to Greta Thunberg and Extinction Rebellion.
