In easy-to-digest sections, science expert Seymour Simon explores the climate crisis and humanity?s role in causing it and discusses what youth activists and experts are doing to fix it. What are the effects of climate change and who are the people working to save our planet? This magazine-style book, which has eight sections and plenty of sidebars full of facts and case studies, spells out clearly what the dangers are and also instills some hope in readers by teaching ways they too can join the cause. This book addresses hot topics like droughts, wildfires, heat waves, deforestation, storms and flooding, sea-level rise, ocean acidification, and wildlife extinction. It then humanizes these topics by spotlighting a youth activist affected by and working on that exact problem. For example, Alexandra Villase.or is an eighth grader whose asthma was so badly triggered by the devastating wildfires in Paradise, California, that she had to leave and move to New York. Alexandria became an activist and joined the global climate strike to walk out of school on Fridays. Other youth activists featured are Greta Thunberg, Xiye Bastida, Isra Hirsi, and Kelsey Juliana.
