Summary:
"The purpose of this book is to help clarify some of the key issues and give readers some ways to think about how they live. It does not begin to cover the full range of information or issues; people can do entire degrees in environmental science and policy. It is intended merely as a quick resource and a jumping-off point. Readers can and should investigate these issues more fully - the Internet abounds in good sources and active debate"-- Provided by publisher.
