The ABCs of Global Warming: What Everyone Should Know About the Science, the Dangers, and the Solutions : Charles Siegel
The most concise, most readable, and most complete book about the climate emergency.
This book is the quickest, easiest way to learn everything you need to know about global warming. Using easy-to-understand language without jargon, it explains:
● The Science: Discusses the greenhouse gases and how they set the Earth’s temperature, warming because of human-caused emissions, natural processes that amplify human-caused warming, and how we can limit warming.
● The Dangers: Discusses heatwaves, flooding, droughts, wildfires, rising sea levels, acid oceans, extinction, poverty, and irreversible tipping points that can worsen warming.
● The Solutions: Discusses a fee on emissions with revenue returned to citizens, sectors that can easily transition to clean alternatives (such as electricity and ground transportation), sectors that need technological innovations to transition to clean alternatives, multiple emissions offsets to speed the shift to net-zero emissions, and the path to a stable climate.
This is the book for you if you want an introduction to the facts about global warming, or if you understand the basics and want more complete knowledge, or if you are looking for the perfect gift for the global-warming denier in your life.
