Abstract:

Climate change is real ... depending on who you ask. Scientists and environmentalists have been going head-to-head and toe-to-toe with CEOs and politicians over our global resources, insisting that a large-scale climate crisis is upon us. This collection of diverse perspectives looks at all sides of this fraught debate, discusses the pros and cons of global action to curtail climate change, and offers ideas and solutions for what readers can do about climate change on the home front while the experts keep duking it in political arenas.
