The climate book
|Language of origin
Increasing drought and heat in some places and more and more frequent monsoons in others: climate change is a highly complex phenomenon and understanding it doesn’t get easier if people ignore facts and spread a feeling of insecurity. Education and elucidation are vital at this point, and the Climate Book, with its 50 descriptive graphics, does exactly that.
With the support of numerous scientists, Esther Gonstalla has transformed complex relationships and scientific data into easy-to-understand information in the form of different graphics. The book deals with fundamental questions concerning climatic processes, reflects on the ecological impact of humans through coal-fired power plants, deforestation as well as conventional agriculture, and sets out the current and future consequences of global warming. However, the Climate Book does not stop at illustrating of the climate crisis and its repercussions; it also proposes various solutions, from political to every day actions.
