Overview

Could global warming melt the polar ice caps and submerge coastal cities? Are the rain forests about to disappear? Facts, Not Fear is the first guidebook to help parents counter the irresponsible claims of environmental extremists—and to give their children a more balanced view of the many environmental issues they encounter.
