"Humans are very adaptable: We can still fix this. But the opportunity to do so will not last for long. We must start today. We have no more excuses" GRETA THUNBERG
Follow in the footsteps of the Swedish teenage activist and Nobel Peace Prize candidate in We Are All Greta and join the global mission to save our planet from climate change.
Greta Thunberg, author of No One is too Small to Make a Difference, has directed the attention of adults and her peers alike to issues crucial to the future of the planet, and the heads of even the youngest children have been filled with questions. GLOBAL WARMING, THE GREENHOUSE EFFECT, FOSSIL FUELS - what do they all mean? What are biodiversity and sustainable development? Who is studying the changes that are taking place here on Earth? Which sources are reliable? What action can I take?
We Are All Greta sets out the basic ideas required to understand climate change, explained in a scientific and accessible way and drawn from the most authoritative sources. With a chapter on key words and sites to help you understand the climate challenge and a list of websites to visit for further information, this is a book for young people, for parents, for grandparents and anyone having to answer direct and urgent questions about what must be done to protect our world.

STOREFRONT CLOSED FOR REGULAR BUSINESS
Nevertheless, UPB provides ship-to-home service.
Unless and until we move our on-line fulfillment team to different premises, everything you purchase from us ships from warehouses outside of Berkeley.
Much of what we used to carry on store shelves is available, except for very expensive books, used books, and titles fallen between printings.
A number of limitations apply during this period of reduced operations:
Only orders that subtotal under $75.00 will ship.
Thus, we may remove items from a multi-book order and ask you to resubmit them on a separate order.
Sometimes we may have to split an order because books are stocked at different warehouses. Sorry, it's impossible to tell in advance when this may happen.
Credit card orders only
Many high demand titles ship fairly quickly. Most other titles travel from back east, adding 2 to 3 days to delivery
Althoug we love you in Canada, Latin America, and else where, U.S. orders only.
Certain publishers set low margins on certain titles. Sorry, we've had to raise prices on these, some we don't offer at all.
