Editorial Reviews

Review

"Easy to read and to understand, this collection informs and educates about the major environmental issues of our day. A useful antidote to confusion about the basic facts and relationships that will have a fundamental impact on our common future: this book concisely presents information that should prove interesting and useful for every citizen."
(Peter H. Raven past president, American Association for the Advancement of Science (AAAS))

"Insightful articles from the world's leading scientists offer an alarming diagnosis of the state of our home planet as well as prescriptions for improvement. This book is a vital contribution to any undergraduate course on the environment."
(David Blockstein Executive Secretary of the Council of Environmental Deans and Directors)

"This thought-provoking compendium illuminates the crucial role of science for informing policy in a time of unprecedented threats and the regrettable growth of 'anti-science' propaganda. It belongs on the desk of every political and economic decision maker—and every voter and consumer."
(Ambassador Richard Benedick chief U.S. negotiator of the 1987 Montreal Protocol on protecting the ozone layer) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Format: Paperback
I sit in my hotel room in Doha, Qatar and I watch the local government allow (and promote) exactly the same destruction by the same means as described in this volume. It is a compilation of progress, and lack thereof, since "Tragedy of the Commons." Every adult should read this and consider their role in causing the environmental changes.
