Heos, Bridget. It’s Getting Hot in Here: The Past, the Present, and the Future of Global Warming. HMH, 2016. $17.99. 224p. 9780544303478. Ages 12+. P6Q9

Heos Getting HotClimate change in the 21st century cannot be denied, and Heos explains its science and history. The beginning narrative describing the universe’s formation and periods of earth’s climate changes morphs into drastic shifts after people spent the global fossil fuels during the Agricultural and Industrial Revolutions. Full-color photographs depict effects of rising sea levels and changing weather patterns throughout the world. Beneficial are the “Be the Change” sections concluding each chapter, showing the readers simple ways in which they can make lifestyle changes to slow global warming. People of all ages should read this accessible, well-researched work on a issue that affects everyone lives.
