A witty guide to the science behind climate change, which puts kids in charge.

Never has there been a more perfect time to empower kids to take the lead and educate their grown-ups about climate change. Featuring a foreword by internationally renowned climate scientist Dr. Michael E. Mann and bursting with fabulous original illustrations, this delightfully witty book deals with the pressing topic of our changing planet in an uplifting, positive way. Interwoven amongst the more serious questions––why is Earth so special in the first place? How do we know about climate change? What causes it? How can we recognize false information?––are fun-filled facts about cow burps, woolly mammoths, panda-shaped solar panels, and much more. Crucially, this book also equips kids and adults alike with the practical tools they need to tackle climate change in their everyday lives. And there’s a handy quiz at the end so that you can check your grown-up has been paying attention!

This book is full of attitude and spunk. The science of climate change is explained in simple terms. There are details about real ways we're already seeing the effects of climate change, what we can expect, and how we can slow it down.
This is a serious topic, with real science, intermingled with hilarious and brilliant facts, making this an easily digestible read.

This book is also packed with wonderful illustrations which not only demonstrate in pictures what can be done, elaborating what is written in the text, but also lend themselves to being an additional teaching aid for all readers.

The book ends with a quiz that you can give your grown-ups, plus more detail on What You Can Do. There is a good glossary, an age-appropriate list of references, as well as an index.

How to Teach Grown-Ups about Climate Change empowers young readers to move from understanding climate change to climate activism as both personal choices and political, systemic change.
