The globe is warming! The globe is not warming.
We're the ones doing it! It's a natural cycle.
It's gonna be a catastrophe! It'll be harmless.
This is the biggest threat to humankind! This is the biggest hoax in history.

If you're like most people, you're sick of the global warming shouting match. It seems it's easier to just let the two sides have at each other and wait for the dust to clear. But what if we don't have time to figure out who is right?

In WHAT'S THE WORST THAT COULD HAPPEN? science teacher Greg Craven arms us with thinking tools to decide what to do, without having to decide which side is right. This book doesn't focus on what to think about global warming, but how to think about it, so you can come up with your own conclusion without having to buy into what anybody says.

The truth is, no matter what we believe, we could be wrong. So which mistake would you rather risk: The possible harm to the economy that skeptics embrace, or the possible upheaval that activists warn us about? Which is the more acceptable risk: the risk of taking action, or not taking action? It's your call, and this book equips you to make it.
