HOW WE KNOW WHAT WE KNOW ABOUT OUR CHANGING CLIMATE presents the science behind the headlines - evidence from the natural world, including the polar regions, gathered by scientists from all over the world. The engaging text also shows how young "citizen-scientists" are engaged in classroom and in international programmes to learn about and monitor the climate and its changes. Around the world, teachers, administrators and parents are looking for age-appropriate materials that scientifically explains to children global warming and its effects. The authors have written this book to empower children who will inherit a planet that is changing rapidly. The book depicts scientists at work - from scientists working on an icebreaker to learn the secrets of Antarctica, to polar bear studies in the Arctic, to a scientist who studies ancient ocean mud cores; teaches children the language, methods and process of science; imparts knowledge of technological tools and data collection; provides methods and ideas for school and home projects about weather and climate; and describes and encourages participation in citizen-science programmes - students who assist in various national conservation programmes within their schools. In photographs, text and graphic presentations, the book shows how each child can immediately reduce their carbon footprint. It inspires them to do so by showing the positive effects of many children learning about climate and working together, with examples of how some already are influencing their communities to change.
