Heard of Auroras? Sounds familiar but don't mistake it with Aroras, a popular North-Indian surname.

Auroras is the bright light visible around the poles in the Sun.

It’s time to update yourself with the latest terms and phenomenon relating to weather.

Making Sense of Climate, from TERI, is a sober attempt in that direction. While the book deals with a serious subject but it doesn't attempt at lecturing the reader on the same.

The book deals with climate change, what cause it and the effects. Sounds boring but the author describes these terms in a simple language. Also, every topic is explained in details with adequate drawings, illustrations and graphs. While the elders can make sense of the graphs, the young readers can rejoice the pictures.

Author has explained important facts, terms and data separately. Hence, highlighting them.

The over-all look and feel of the book is quite neat and user friendly.

The last pages carry a glossary of significant terms an a glossary of important people and institutes related to the field. It also gives a detail of the laws relating to environmental protection and the upcoming innovations for climate protection.

So next time you are asked about El' Nino, you know where to find this term.
