About this item
In the Arctic, the summer ice is melting, making it hard for polar bears to survive. Why is the world getting warmer? The heat of the sun is trapped by the "greenhouse" gases that surround Earth--carbon dioxide, methane, nitrous oxide, and water vapor.
Uses simple language and colorful illustrations to explain global warming to young children, including coverage of the role of fossil fuels in the warming of the atmosphere, the importance of Arctic ice, and suggestions for saving energy.
