Useful and important!

This book has a lot of facts about Earth and global warming. It's very detailed and explains a lot about why and how we contribute to pollution and how we can help stop it. Gaia Warriors has lots of pictures and some graphs, and I think it would be a great book if you want to learn about global warming.
