“Cambio climático” | Yayo Herrero y María González, Berta Paramo| Litera, Spain | 56pp | 24 × 32 cm
For tens of thousands of years, human beings lived using just the energy of the sun, the tides, the winds or firewood to supply their needs. However, from the Industrial Revolution onwards, advanced societies began a massive use of coal, oil and natural gas. The availability of these fossil fuels set in motion an economy capable of producing enormous amounts of products that are manufactured, sold and transported all over the planet, but this growth has caused global warming and with it climate change, an ecological problem that endangers life as we know it. CLIMATE CHANGE tells us everything about this problem, because … Do we really understand what climate change is and how it has occurred? Do we really know how it affects our woodlands, water or animals, and how it affects us? And above all, do we know what we can do to tackle the problem?
