Description

"This is an eye-opening glimpse at the worldwide impact of rising temperatures." -School Library Journal. "Flooding and climate change have become increasingly important topics that need to be addressed, and our youngest readers - and a large hope for the future of this planet - will learn important information about our world and its climate in this informative text." -Booklist. The Earth's oceans are on the rise. Since 1880, global sea levels have risen steadily each year to a global average of about 8-9 inches (20-23 cm), and they're still rising. By 2100, the sea could climb as much as 6.6 feet (2 m) higher than it is today. Rising Seas gives youth an eye-popping view of what the Earth might look like under the rising sea levels of climate change. Photographs juxtapose the present-day with that area's projected future. The shocking images will help readers understand the urgency for action. This updated and expanded edition features three new locations - London, Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, and Manila, the Philippines - as well as brand new sections about climate anxiety (and what you can do about it) and how the world worked together to close the ozone hole, giving young readers a reason to hope for a better future. The 8 extra pages and thorough revision make this an important warning for the future.
