The Earth is in peril―through pollution, global warming, oil spills, and tragic neglect of the environment. Those who respond first are the animals. There is The Fluff, a penguin; Creamy, a harp seal; Tomás, a black bear; Flora, a polar bear; and Lady Athabasca, a whooping crane, among others. Each of them has suffered from global warming and the neglect of the environment, and wants to do something about it. They jump on a magical train powered by positive thoughts and take off to let others know about the problems Earth’s creatures are facing.

Soon afterward, they travel to Santa Fe and pick up two young girls, Marina and Joanna, who record their incredible trip. The group travels east (as well as north and south) and along the way finds other friends who have endured hardship from fire, drought, and hurricanes. Their final destination is the White House where they hope their call for help is heard.

With this book, young readers can join The Fluff and friends on the Global Warming Express to save our beautiful planet from pollution and global warming. It will be a trip worth taking!

The Cartoon Introduction to Climate Change

Climate change is no laughing matter-but maybe it should be. The topic is so critical that everyone, from students to policy-makers to voters, needs a quick and easy guide to the basics. The Cartoon Introduction to Climate Change entertains as it educates, delivering a unique and enjoyable presentation of mind-blowing facts and critical concepts.
“Stand-up economist” Yoram Bauman and award-winning illustrator Grady Klein have created the funniest overview of climate science, predictions, and policy that you’ll ever read. You’ll giggle, but you’ll also learn-about everything from Milankovitch cycles to carbon taxes.
 
If those subjects sound daunting, consider that Bauman and Klein have already written two enormously successful cartoon guides to economics, making this notoriously dismal science accessible to countless readers. Bauman has a PhD in economics and has taught at both the high school and college level, but he now makes a living performing at comedy clubs, universities, and conferences, sharing the stage with personalities as diverse as Robin Williams and Paul Krugman.
 
The authors know how to get a laugh-and they know their facts. This cartoon introduction is based on the latest report from the authoritative Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) and integrates Bauman’s expertise on economics and policy.
 
If economics can be funny, then climate science can be a riot. Sociologists have argued that we don’t address global warming because it’s too big and frightening to get our heads around. The Cartoon Introduction to Climate Change takes the intimidation and gloom out of one of the most complex and hotly debated challenges of our time.

Causes & Effects Of A Life-Threatening Phenomenon & Ways To Make Planet Earth A Better Place

Tons of ink have been spent explaining and analyzing the root causes of the greenhouse effect and exploring possible corrective steps in order to stop global warming.

To some, the culprit is irresponsible human activity, our carbon footprint on water, land and air, which pollutes our natural resources and takes a toll on our quality of life.

To others, climate change is just part of a natural course and humans are just the victims suffering the inevitable consequences.

Far more than a hotly debated issue, climate change is a reality; it is a factor transforming the face of our planet slowly but steadily and as such it definitely deserves thorough study.

Written in an easy-to-follow, comprehensive language, Climate Change is an eye-opening book intending to explore the roots of the issue, discuss its various implications, shed light on the consequences on our life and examine our alternatives in preventing disaster.

Find out what caused the alarming greenhouse effect and to what extent the rising Earth temperatures are due to the gas emissions of industries, the fumes of our vehicles, deforestation, aerosols and waste dumped in our seas, lakes and rivers.

Learn how our daily rat race made us deaf the screams of our ailing planet, until biodiversity loss took irreversible dimensions.

Knowledge is power and Climate Change aspiresto make a powerful tool in raising public awareness.

Let’s Take Action!

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

From Mayor Michael Bloomberg and former head of the Sierra Club Carl Pope comes a manifesto on how the benefits of taking action on climate change are concrete, immediate, and immense. They explore climate change solutions that will make the world healthier and more prosperous, aiming to begin a new type of conversation on the issue that will spur bolder action by cities, businesses, and citizens―and even, someday, by Washington.

Climate of Hope is an inspiring must read.” ―Former Vice President Al Gore, Chairman of The Climate Reality Project

“Climate change threatens to reshape the future of our world’s population centers. Bloomberg and Pope have been leaders on fortifying our cities against this threat, and their book proves that victory is possible―and imperative.” ―Leonardo DiCaprio

“If Trump is looking for a blueprint, he could not do better than to read a smart new book, Climate of Hope.” ―Thomas Friedman in The New York Times

~

The 2016 election left many people who are concerned about the environment fearful that progress on climate change would come screeching to a halt. But not Michael Bloomberg and Carl Pope.

Bloomberg, an entrepreneur and former mayor of New York City, and Pope, a lifelong environmental leader, approach climate change from different perspectives, yet they arrive at similar conclusions. Without agreeing on every point, they share a belief that cities, businesses, and citizens can lead―and win―the battle against climate change, no matter which way the political winds in Washington may shift.

In Climate of Hope, Bloomberg and Pope offer an optimistic look at the challenge of climate change, the solutions they believe hold the greatest promise, and the practical steps that are necessary to achieve them. Writing from their own experiences, and sharing their own stories from government, business, and advocacy, Bloomberg and Pope provide a road map for tackling the most complicated challenge the world has ever faced. Along the way, they turn the usual way of thinking about climate change on its head: from top down to bottom up, from partisan to pragmatic, from costs to benefits, from tomorrow to today, and from fear to hope.
