    A fantastic book about climate change for adolescents or those looking for a clear and easy to read book on the topic. The author has a great way of simplifying information without talking down to her reader. I also enjoyed the way the chapters started with stories of how humans have affected climate for a /5(10).   Amazon Deforestation and Climate Change Amazon Deforestation and Climate Change Join Gisele Bundchen when she meets with one of Brazil’s top climate scientists to discuss the complexity of the Amazon rain forest and its connection to Earth’s atmosphere.

    The carbon dioxide factor There are concerns that the Amazon region could become a net source rather than a sink (storage) of carbon dioxide (CO 2), a gas emitted mainly from burning fossil fuels, coal, oil and natural gas - and the major driver for global climate change. Currently, the Amazon rainforests are still a sink for CO 2, despite some 20% of CO 2 emissions globally arising from. Reviews. Kerry Emanuel's book What We Know About Climate Change is one of the best [books on climate change] and is certainly the shortest. In less time than it takes to eat dinner, the respected atmospheric scientist and Massachusetts Institute of Technology professor filters out the noise and presents clearly the essence of the issues that surround global warming.

Atmosphere and Climate Change Section 1 Latitude • Latitude is the distance north or south from the equator and is expressed in degrees. –0° latitude = equator –90° north = North Pole, most northerly –90° south = South Pole, most southerly • Latitude strongly affects climate because the amount of solar energy an area of the Earth receives depends on.

Habitats are being modified, the timing of events such as flowering and egg laying are shifting, and species are altering their home ranges. Changes are also occurring to the ocean.

The ocean absorbs about 30% of the carbon dioxide that is released into the atmosphere from the burning of fossil fuels.
