Explores government's role in addressing climate change on both a national and international level. Discusses official recognition of climate change such as the Kyoto Protocols. Looks at the United States' historical responses to climate change; efforts to regulate carbon dioxide and reduce emissions through a carbon tax and renewable fuel standard; energy-efficient building; land use policies; and efforts to maintain biological diversity.
"The concrete examples will fuel debate on a passionate topic for many YAs, not only about how to reduce climate change but also how to regulate it."
