The Sky's Not Falling
by Holly Fretwell

A factual, upbeat account of climate change written for reader level 9 to 12, to counter media scaremongering and the politicization force-fed in schools

Book Description from amazon.com:
The Sky's Not Falling: Why It's OK To Chill About Global Warming is for parents sick of seeing their kids indoctrinated by has-been politicians and Hollywood stars. Unlike books written by would-be celebrities without any scientific or economics background, "The Sky's Not Falling" is everything a book about the environment written for kids should be: fact-filled, apolitical, fun and optimistic about the future of our magnificent, ever-changing planet. In "The Sky's Not Falling," author Holly Fretwell, a natural resources management expert, shows kids ages 8 and up that human ingenuity combined with an "enviropreneurial" spirit will lead us to a bright environmental future, not one where people ruin the earth. Parents confronted by Photoshopped pictures of drowning animals and faux "documentaries" will embrace a book that educates rather than manipulates.

"Thanks to books like The Sky's Not Falling, organizations like The Science and Public Policy Institute and Junkscience.com, and outspoken critics like Sen. James Inhofe, the message is getting through that global warming is more a political construct than a scientific one, that our environment is better today in many ways, and that innovation and adaptation, not government control, are the keys to a bright future."
