The essential, all-in-one guide to climate change—packed with easy-to-understand infographics on all the latest scientific findingsThis Is Climate Change cuts straight to the facts, using infographics on every page to make the reality about our warming planet plain to see. How much do humans contribute to global warming? What do ever-more-frequent storms and floods mean for our homes, forests, coastlines, and crops? And what is happening to our oceans (beyond rising sea levels)? Corroborated by over 100 scientists, This Is Climate Change captures the scope of the present crisis without glossing over the nuance or what we don’t know. This is an urgent examination of the state of our precious, precarious planet—in pictures.
About the Author
David Nelles and Christian Serrer are students at the University of Friedrichshafen, Germany. With This Is Climate Change, they hope to explain in as comprehensible a way as possible the causes and consequences of climate change, and to inspire even more people around the world to prioritize environmental and climate protection.

“The most remarkable thing about it is that, in an age of inexorably hardening political battle lines, it is really changing minds.”—The Times (UK)
“Climate change has triggered a hurricane of contradictory claims and theses that obscure the facts. Unbiased, clear, and evidence-based explanations are a shield against fake news. This amazing book delivers them.”—Dr. Claus Kleber, ZDF’s heute-journal
“It might sound impossible to explain something as complex as the mechanisms of climate change both simply and accurately. But this is exactly what Nelles and Serrer have achieved with their book.”—Physics World
