And Other Stuff About Our Planet
Jacqui Bailey - All books by this author

Written especially for young adult readers, this heavily illustrated book presents the basics on all major environmental issues, and suggests steps that governments, organizations, and ordinary citizens can take to help keep the planet green. Major issues discussed include—
  • Energy and energy efficiency: Non-renewable fossil fuels and renewable sources, including solar, wind, hydropower, and others
  • Climate change, greenhouse gases, and global warming: Focusing on air and water pollution, oil spills, and related issues
  • Waste: Recycling biodegradable garbage
  • Population growth: Increased urbanization, the spread of slums, birth control, and sustainable urbanization
Other topics discussed include the importance of trees and rainforests, the human impact on animal species, overfishing and overfarming problems, the effects of cars, planes, and trains on the environment, world government environmental plans and campaigns, and environmentally friendly steps that individuals can take. The issues are presented in brief, illustrated copy blocks that kids will find both fascinating and easy to read. They take the forms of fact panels, true/false panels, case histories, and action panels. Cartoon-style illustrations on every page. (Ages 11–14)

From the reviews:
“This fun and timely intro to green living incorporates cartoon images with photos, colorful charts, diagrams, and instructive panels. Easy to read format will provide readers with a firm grasp on environmental topics...”
