The amount of material published on environmental issues continues to grow, comprised of broad generalizations aimed at non-specialists in the field. This edition of "Global Environmental Issues" fills the gap between technical literature and general articles for popular reading.
The book takes an interdisciplinary approach to issues such as global warming, ozone depletion, drought and acid rain--those which raise the greatest concern, and emphasizes both their societal and environmental components. While the book is grounded in a sound scientific base, it presents the work in as non-technical manner as possible. The unifying theme is the climatological aspect, and this unique approach is continued in this revised edition.
While the main theme is climatological, the contributions of socio-economic, political and cultural elements to these issues are also examined and held in account. "Global Environmental Issues" is a valuable edition of a unique and accessible work on a topic of worldwide concern.

This book provides a balanced account of the global environmental issues which threaten our society and which we neglect at our peril. Analysing both social and environmental components of the issues - global warming, ozone depletion, acid rain and drought - the book offers a valuable integrative approach and a detailed analysis of environmental issues in a clear, non-technical manner.Emphasising the climatological dimension common to all environmental issues, Global Environmental Issues recognises the multi-faceted nature of the issues, their common causes and the possibility of common solutions. Assessment of socio-economic, cultural amd political factors provides a balanced introduction to both the dangers and advantages of human interference with the environment. What have we done to deserve our current environmental crisis? Can we solve our current environmental problems, or is it too late?This new edition of a best selling text is completely updated and expands to include greater detail and new material such as a new section on atmospheric modelling. A glossary has been added together with a bibliography for further reading at the end of each chapter, allowing readers to develop their interest in specific areas. The interdisciplinary text will prove invaluable to students in geography, environmental studies and other courses in whcih the environmental approach is emphasised.
