Environmental Science Book

Great item, very useful and full of wonderful information. The book looks at environmental issues from scientific, economic and ethical points of view which is very useful. It uses case studies to highlight fact.

Good Practical Book

Being a chemistry student, I've read this book as part of my classes. I've got to say, it's an excellent book, definitely worth reading by itself. It offers concrete, pragmatic solutions and an unbiased collection of scientificly supported descriptions of environmental problems and how to deal with them. It's also almost completely devoid of gloom and doom, as opposed to some of today's green movements. Very much recommended.

Reviews, anyone?

This is an excellent textbook, one that I have used in two of my Environmental Science classes (namely, Environmental Problems of Man [Bio 11], and Energy for the Future [Envi Sci 1].) While not completely without bias (which is mostly subtle, and not totally incorrect), the book offers a solid introduction to many environmental issues. The introduction chapter of the textbook states that environmental science is interdisciplinary, and the book is laid out accordingly. Chapters run the gamut from biology, chemisty, simple physics, and pure ecological common sense. An excellent purchase for any serious scientist and/or conscientious environmentalist.

The best of the introductory environmental science texts

Of the half-a-dozen environmental science texts I read in preparing a 10th grade environmental science block, this is by far the best written, with the clearest figures. Highly recommended.

superb ecology intro....

....and a clearly written blend of ecology, systems theory, and environmental science, with interesting Enrichment sections and Guest Editorials by a variety of influential figures.I like the "liberal" slant--in other words, the call to quit being the world's biggest consumer and polluter and create a sustainable society with more realistic values than the dream of unlimited expansion--but then I can't think of anything more insane than allowing the world to overheat so the oil empires can go on making money.Anyway, major sections covered include:Humans and Nature: An OverviewSome Concepts of EcologyPopulation, Resources, and PollutionEnvironment and SocietyI'm glad I bought mine used; the publisher is nuts for charging this much money for a textbook, no matter how well-crafted.
