Summary
"Humanity's impact on the natural world can have disastrous effects. Melting Arctic Ice shines a light on how climate change is affecting Earth's polar region. With abundant charts and diagrams and large-format photos, this title explores the science behind greenhouse gases, polar sea ice, and rising sea levels, and considers actions people and governments can take to try to improve the situation. Features include a flow chart showing the disaster's causes and effects, a glossary, references, websites, source notes, and an index. Aligned to Common Core Standards and correlated to state standards. "--Publisher's website
