(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Part of the new Ladybird Expert series, Climate Change is a clear, simple and enlightening introduction to one of the most important issues facing our world today. From HRH The Prince of Wales, environmentalist Tony Juniper and climate scientist Dr Emily Shuckburgh, it explains the history, dangers and challenges of global warming and explores possible solutions with which to reduce its impact.

You'll learn about the causes and consequences of climate disruption; heatwaves, floods and other extreme weather; disappearing wildlife; acid oceans; the benefits of limiting warming; sustainable farming, new clean technologies and the circular economy.

Written by the leading lights and most outstanding communicators in their fields, the Ladybird Expert books provide clear, accessible and authoritative introductions to subjects drawn from science, history and culture.

For an adult readership, the Ladybird Expert series is produced in the same iconic small hardback format pioneered by the original Ladybirds. Each beautifully illustrated book features the first new illustrations produced in the original Ladybird style for nearly forty years.

Other books currently available in the Ladybird Expert series include:

Evolution 


AUTHOR: HRH The Prince of Wales has been an environmental leader for over forty years, working with businesses, charities, governments and others to help promote sustainable ways of living and working. He made his first speech on the environment in December 1968 and has long warned of the irreversible effects of climate change. In October 2007 he set up the Prince's Rainforests Project to slow tropical deforestation and combat climate change, and in 2010 his International Sustainability Unit was established to facilitate consensus on key environmental challenges, including how best to protect food security and sustain vital ecosystems. The Prince of Wales has also sought to address climate change challenges through his patronage of the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership and its Corporate Leaders Group on Climate Change.

Dr Tony Juniper is an independent environmentalist and writer. He is a fellow of the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership and the President of the Royal Society of Wildlife Trusts. Dr Emily Shuckburgh, OBE, is a climate scientist at the British Antarctic Survey. She holds a number of positions at the University of Cambridge and is a fellow of the Royal Meteorological Society.
