by Alexander Peckham

Age Range: 10 - 14

Pub Date: March 1st, 1991
ISBN: 0-531-17274-0

 In the ``Issues'' series (designed to present enough information on current topics to inspire discussion), a general overview of the origins of the greenhouse effect and global warming, their effects on the environment, plus projected problems and possible solutions. The presentation here is typical of the series: double spreads on subtopics are comprised of brief paragraphs, numerous color photos, and boxed inserts. The result is less a coherent whole than a rapidly dating potpourri-- ephemeral at best. One-page summary of ``hard facts''; chronology; index.~(Nonfiction. 10-14)
