More and more frequent extreme weather events occur each year, and planet Earth is in danger of developing more climates where life — whether animal, vegetable, or human — is unsustainable. Climate Change For Dummies explains how rising temperatures, shrinking lakes, rising oceans, and shifting weather patterns affect your life on a daily basis. And of course the book goes a step further and offers suggestions about how you can take steps to limit your impact on the environment and help to reverse climate change.

This straightforward guide demystifies the impact of climate’s No. 1 enemy — carbon dioxide — and breaks down the many sources of this damaging but inescapable gas. From there, the book reveals how rising CO2 levels affect the weather, water levels, plant and animal species around the world, the food you eat, and your health. But the situation isn’t hopeless! Climate Change For Dummies outlines actions governments, industries, and you can take to fight global warming and turn the tide to live in a cooler world. Discover details about
