Description

Climate is a hot topic. Turns out, it’s been a major mover and shaker since time began. Climate has made it possible for new species to evolve, yet has wiped out others. We might not think about it this way, but it has a hand in determining where we live, what we do, and how well we survive.

The fourth book in Annick’s highly engaging 50 Questions series gives readers the answers to earth-shattering questions such as “How big was the wallop that KO’d T. rex?” (Huge! Scientists believe a Manhattan-sized asteroid killed off dinosaurs by creating thick dust that cooled the earth’s climate. ) Or “Would you call this a BIG help?” (Giant poop from sperm whales is helping to reduce greenhouse gases—go, whales, go!)

You’ll be surprised to read about the dangers of belching cows, or about the hailstorm that started a revolution. Discover the topsy-turvy world of climate in these electrifying pages, while enjoying the madcap illustrations along the way.
