Ice Age, Meet Climate Change
The grade-school book, All About the Ice Age, by Patricia Lauber takes a look at global warming at the end of the last Ice Age through the lens of 1959 scientific theory. That era's understanding of climate change presents theories of the human impact that are being proven today.
