A timely and important nonfiction book for middle grade readers, adapted from the adult book of the same title, about the decade in which the trajectory of climate change could have been reversed and how young people today can rise to action. By 1979, we knew nearly everything we understand today about climate change-including how to stop it. Over the next decade, a handful of scientists, politicians, and strategists, led by two unlikely heroes, risked their careers in a desperate, escalating campaign to convince the world to act before it was too late. Losing Earth is their story, and ours. Losing Earth tells the human story of climate change from the distant past into the present day, wrestling with the long shadow of our failures, what might be ahead for today's youth, and crucial questions of how we understand the world we live in. It is a call to action, a riveting dramatic history, and a rare literary achievement.
