Climate is a hot topic. Turns out, it's been a major mover and shaker since time began. Climate has made it possible for new species to evolve, yet has wiped out others. We might not think about it this way, but it has a hand in determining where we live, what we do, and how well we survive. The fourth book in Annick's highly engaging 50 Questions series gives readers the answers to earth-shattering questions such as "How big was the wallop that KO'd T. rex?" (Huge! Scientists believe a Manhattan-sized asteroid killed off dinosaurs by creating thick dust that cooled the earth's climate.) Or "Would you call this a BIG help?" (Giant poop from sperm whales is helping to reduce greenhouse gases go, whales, go!) You'll be surprised to read about the dangers of belching cows, or about the hailstorm that started a revolution. Discover the topsy-turvy world of climate in these electrifying pages, while enjoying the madcap illustrations along the way.

MEDIA REVIEWS
A fun and informative resource.
It's loaded with fart jokes and poop stories, conflict and ickiness, and catchy pop-culture references, but its content is solid and its argument is vital.--Leslie Vermeer"Resource Links" (04/01/2012)
This sweeping chronicle looks at climate change over the eons, giving readers a broad and multifaceted picture of a timely topic.... For a historical look at a hot topic, this title might fill a need.--Carol W. Surges"School Library Journal" (07/01/2012)
Students could be provoked or engaged with the fun facts, snippets of science and history, and close-ups of climate change's impact on past earth inhabitants.--Laura Williamson Doyle"Science Books and Film" (02/01/2013)
This is a solid resource chronicling climate and climate change starting around four billion years ago.--Amanda Forbes"Canadian Teacher Magazine" (04/01/2014)
History plus meteorology equals hilarity in this heavily illustrated, nicely designed jaunt through four billion years of Earth's history. What happened to the dinosaurs? When was the Year without a Summer? What's the connection between the Little Ice Age and the greatest violins ever made? Christie explains it all in his book, which incorporates wacky full-color cartoons, goofy captions, and a humorous, irreverent text. Readers will learn about greenhouse gases, glaciation, and the climate effects of Earth's wiggly orbit.--Paula Willey"School Library Journal" (09/09/2014)
