Everything you need to know about climate change from the causes to the evidence to the effects and what you can do to help combat it. Climate change is already having dramatic and dangerous effects on life on Earth. But what does climate change really mean? What are people doing that could cause the whole planet to get warmer? How can simply driving a car or eating a burger end up impacting Earth's climate? From fossil fuels and deforestation to car use and cow farts, we uncover the culprits of climate change and work out what can be done to combat it. Scientists, inventors and technicians are coming up with creative solutions to try to reduce the effects of climate change, such as building floating homes, restoring flood plans and conserving water. We show how proactive and inspiring people are taking action around the world from campaigning to making practical changes to their everyday lives, and you can find out what you can do to help too.
