Small Gases - Big Effect: This is Climate Change

Approved by over 100 scientists, written and illustrated in a way that everyone can understand, this clear, simple, concise book tells you everything you need to know about the most important question of our time.

The public debate on climate change is often all haywire. To understand what is actually a fact, there has so far been no way around thick scientific textbooks. Until now. When students David Nelles and Christian Serrer struggled to find a book that explained the nuts and bolts of climate change in a way that was comprehensive, concise and enjoyable to read, they decided to write and publish it themselves.

With meticulous research corroborated by over 100 scientists, Small Gases, Big Effect summarises all the latest findings on the causes and effects of climate change. Combining clear, thoughtful writing with informative illustrations, it is a little book that presents complex scientific evidence in a way that everyone will find easy to understand.

Reviews

»Climate change has triggered a hurricane of contradictory claims and theses that obscure the facts. Explanations without blinkers, clear and obvious, are a shield against fake news. This amazing book delivers them.«
Dr. Claus Kleber, ZDF 'heute-journal'

»This book, written by two young people, manages to sum up a wealth of complex scientific findings in an understandable way - knowledge that we urgently need to shape our future.«
Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research
