    Travel north—beyond the Arctic Circle—to Barrow, Alaska, and meet the proud Iñupiat people. For thousands of years they have hunted whales on the open sea, but now global climate change threatens their way of life. The whale hunt is about to begin, and you’re invited to come along! Just as soon as the ice covering the ocean cracks apart, the whales will appear. Set out with the Iñupiats in their bearded-sealskin boats to hunt bowhead whales, and witness a tradition that has been followed for three thousand years. So grab some warm clothes and loosen up your throwing arm—the hunt is on! Multiple award-winning author Peter Lourie is acclaimed for his environmental science writing. Here he transports young listeners due north to discover a culture completely different from their own and to show them what climate change means for the Iñupiat and us all.

    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.
