'What are the wispy tails left behind by airplanes? Why are we up to our necks in floods? How is wind farmed? What energy never runs out?' These and 38 other questions about our environment are answered in this information packed picture book.

Young readers will learn about melting ice caps, the ozone hole, solar power, energy-saving light bulbs, and a many other topics that, in one way of another, impact the planet's environment.

For example, did you know that over the last sixty years about half the world's rainforests have been cut down? You may also be surprised to discover that the total surface area of Earth's glaciers has shrunk by half in the last century. Is recycling important? Well, consider this: recycling just one aluminum can saves enough energy to run a TV set for three hours.

After reading this book the reader will have a better sense of not only what global warming is all about but also how he or she can adopt green practices that will conserve energy and make the planet a better place to live for everyone.
