As we rapidly approach the point of no return on climate change, this book presents the facts about the impact humans are having on the planet Understand the science that explains what pressure our planet is under and how to take action. Using powerful, easy-to-grasp graphics, this book cuts through the noise and gets straight to the most up-to-date facts on climate change, overpopulation, pollution, over-consumption, pandemics, and much more. Tony Juniper distills wide-ranging, heart-stopping research into one reliable and eye-opening book. He charts the dramatic explosion of human population and consumption and its impact on planet Earth, revealing how increasing pressures on our world affect factors such as climate, sea levels, and pollution, and what that means for our future. Global warming has led to sea levels rising over the past 100 years, and the Arctic ice sheet is shrinking at a rate never seen before. Ten million people each year are affected by coastal flooding. One third of all land is at risk of turning to desert, with huge implications for food supplies.

As well as explaining global trends and showing how they are connected, The Science of Our Changing Planet explores how we can live more sustainably into the future, with positive ideas of how we can mitigate damaging trends.
