    What’s really going on with the environment—in our own backyards and the wider world? Conflicting information is offered by websites, magazines, and documentaries that blur the line between news and opinion. Not every report is reliable; not every interest group is actually composed of concerned citizens. In this dynamic account, award-winning author Paul Fleischman arms teens with the basic tools to uncover vested interests and falsehoods by vetting sources, following the money, and checking references so they can make informed decisions about what actions to take in the worldwide battle against climate change, overconsumption, and dwindling resources. We’re living in an “ah-ha” moment. Take 250 years of human ingenuity and add abundant fossil fuels. The result: a population and lifestyle never before seen. The downsides weren’t visible for centuries, but now they are. Suddenly everything needs rethinking—suburbs, cars, fast food, and cheap prices. It’s a changed world. This book explains it. Not with isolated facts, but with the principles driving attitudes and events, from vested interests to denial to big-country syndrome. Because money is as important as molecules in the environment, science is joined with politics, history, and psychology to provide the briefing needed to comprehend the twenty-first century.
