Climate Change: Examining the Facts by Daniel Bedford; John CookClimate change is one of the most controversial and misunderstood issues of the 21st century. This book provides a clear understanding of the issue by presenting scientific facts to refute falsehoods and misinformation--and to confirm the validity of other assertions. * Provides a broad overview of the subject of climate change that is specifically written to be accessible and interesting for senior high school or introductory college-level audiences * Presents a comprehensive explanation of the science of climate change that directly addresses widely held misconceptions head-on--a strategy that has been demonstrated in education research to be more effective in dispelling myths and advancing student learning than straight fact-based teaching * Focuses on providing quantifiable, evidence-based information on climate change--and acknowleding instances when conflicting data exists--from the most reputable and qualified sources
