Understanding Environmental Pollution

Coperta unu
Cambridge University Press, 1997 - 316 pagini
A lucidly-written and thorough approach to comprehending pollution issues, Understanding Environmental Pollution systematically addresses issues from global stratospheric ozone depletion to personal pollution in the home. The author identifies pollutants and their sources, addresses the risks to humans and the environment, and discusses what is being done to reduce emissions. Although it focuses on the United States, this book considers the global implications of local pollution and stresses both individual and corporate responsibility. The book provides basic concepts in toxicology and risk assessment next to contrary opinions on major issues, enabling curious undergraduate students to evaluate environmental problems, realizing that there may not be a "right" answer. It is an excellent text for introducing students to pollution problems and the environment.
