Reviews

'Asks the big questions about global warming and considers how we can all help. The book works best as an informative guide to the main issues. Starting with an easy-to-read potted history, beginning with the industrial revolution, it examines everything from fair trade to biofuels.This book doesn't shy away from politics either, asking what governments can do about climate change and the threat to our planet. For extra green points, the book is printed on Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) approved paper and 20p from every copy goes to the environmental charity Friends of the Earth' - BBC Green; 'This explanation of the environmental problems facing our planet, what has gone wrong and what needs to be done about it, will help older primary and younger secondary pupils to a better understanding of environmental problems. It includes an introduction to the energy crisis, pollution, food and food miles, wildlife in danger, disappearing forests and carbon footprints. There are lots of practical ideas for how pupils can 'go green'
