              Climate change and social inequity are both sprawling, insidious forces that threaten populations around the world. It's time we start talking about them together. Climate Change and the People's Health offers a brave and ambitious new framework for understanding how our planet's... two greatest existential threats comingle, complement, and amplify one another - and what can be done to mitigate future harm. In doing so it posits three new modes of thinking: * That climate change interacts with the social determinants of health and exacerbates existing health inequities * The idea of a consumptagenic system - a network of policies, processes, governance and modes of understanding that fuel unhealthy, and environmentally destructive production and consumption * The steps necessary to move from denial and inertia toward effective mobilization, including economic, social, and policy interventions With insights from physical science, social science, and humanities, this short book examines how climate change and social inequity are indelibly linked, and considering them together can bring about effective change in social equity, health, and the environment.

              Rocket to the Moon!: Big Ideas That Changed the World #1 (EPUB ebook)

              By Brown, Don

              On July 20, 1969, Neil Armstrong took "one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind" when the Apollo 11 landed on the moon. But it wasn't just one man who got us to the moon. Rocket to the Moon! explores the people and technology that made the moon landing possible. Instead... of examining one person's life, it focuses on the moon landing itself, showing the events leading up to it and how it changed the world. The book takes readers through the history of rocket building: from ancient Chinese rockets, to "bombs bursting in air" during the War of 1812, to Russia's Sputnik program, to the moon landing. Beautifully illustrated and well-researched, this book is the perfect resource for curious readers and tomorrow's scientists. It includes a timeline of space travel, a bibliography, and an index.
