Global Warming Alert! is a timely title in the "Disaster Alert!" series intended for young adults ages 7-14. Today, the Earth's average temperature is rising, sea levels worldwide are shifting, and increased desertification and crop loss is prompting humanitarian crises. Global Warming Alert! examines the perilous effects of modern technology on the planet as a whole. Chapters cover the "Greenhouse Effect", in which the consumption of fossil fuels in homes and automobiles produce greenhouse gases that become trapped in the Earth's atmosphere; animal species whose survival is endangered because of climate change; islands that are drowning and the loss of coastal living space; what ordinary people can do to reverse climate change; and much more. An invaluable introduction to a very serious issue affecting the planet's immediate and long-term future, highly recommended especially for public and school library collections.
