Professional reviews

"Current reports continually warn of the environmental state of our planet. For example, extreme weather is on the rise, polar bears forage closer and closer to arctic towns, and the algae end of the food chain is becoming depleted. It all sounds so dire that, even for young people, it's tempting to tune it out. Not after listening to this audiobook! The authors provide a cogent explanation of global-warming processes, their consequences, and examples of meaningful action. Narrator Polly Lee's pacing is relentless as she delivers each topic, and the cumulative effect stresses the immediacy of global concerns. She enunciates clearly and modulates her voice to make each point clear. A glossary completes the DOWN-TO-EARTH GUIDE. A.R. (c) AudioFile 2008, Portland, Maine"
