    read it and decide for yourself

    "Global warming" and "climate change" are terms related to a subject that has been in the news quite a bit lately. After a brief discussion of "What is Science?" with an explanation of hypotheses, theories, facts, and belief, authors Lynne Cherry and Gary Braasch present evidence from birds, flowers, butterflies, tropical rain forests, trees rings, boreal forests, the tundra, the North and South Poles, glaciers, the ocean, coastlines, carbon dioxide measurements, mud layers, and ice cores, gathered by scientists all over the world, sometimes with assistance from young "citizen scientists," regarding our changing climate. Subsequent sections present what can be done to learn about climate change and to take action to make a difference.
    In doing some background research for this book review, I found that there really is no argument regarding the evidence so ably presented in How We Know What We Know About Our Changing Climate. The facts are there for all to see. It is hard to deny that our climate is somewhat warmer right now than it has been at various times in the past. The debate rages over the interpretation of the evidence. Many scientists believe that our current climate change is the result of human activity and must be reversed by taking steps to lower our "carbon footprints." Other equally qualified, reputable, and serious scientists are convinced that the present "global warming" is simply part of a natural cycle of earth's meteorological patterns and there is really not much that we can do to alter it. Whatever one's opinion of global warming is, the book does raise some important questions, so each person can read it and decide for himself.
