Earth in the Hot Seat: Bulletins from a Warming World
National Geographic Children's Books, March 2009

The Earth is getting warmer, and while the planet will survive this, many of its inhabitants may not, not if we can't slow the tons of carbon pouring into our atmosphere.
Earth in the Hot Seat clearly explains the phenomenon of and the science behind global warming. It uses real people and real-life examples to report from the front lines of the fight to protect our warming planet. It explores the challenges—and the opportunities—presented by climate change…. Most important, it inspires us to care about the planet. It's the only one we've got.

Marfe Ferguson Delano, an author living in Alexandria, VA, has written numerous award-winning National Geographic books. Hooray For Books! at 1555 King St in Alexandria, VA, is pleased to host a book-signing party for her newest book, Earth in the Hot Seat, on Sunday, March 29, 2009, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. The event is free and includes light refreshments.
