The amount of material published on environmental issues continues to grow, comprised of broad generalizations aimed at non-specialists in the field. This edition ofGlobal Environmental Issuesfills 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 Issuesis a valuable edition of a unique andaccessible work on a topic of worldwide concern.
