9780133656770: The Green Encyclopedia: An A-Z Sourcebook of Environmental Concerns—and Solutions

From acid rain to zero population growth… The Green Encyclopedia is the complete A-to-Z sourcebook for students, activists, and ordinary citizens who want to understand and solve environmental problems. This all-in-one resource is designed to provide fast, accurate information on the whole range of environmental concerns. No other book approaches The Green Encyclopedia's depth, breadth, and clarity of coverage. Here, in more than 1,000 A-to-Z entries, are:

  • Endangered species—from bats and elephants to sea turtles, whales, whooping cranes, and zebras
  • Notable environmental disasters—Chernobyl, Love Canal, Bhopal, the Exxon Valdez
  • Environmental "hot spots"—endangered places from Antarctica to the Serengeti and the Great Barrier Reef
  • Ecosystems and processes—wetlands, rain forests, and deserts; erosion, the carbon cycle, and water resources
  • Problems and harmful substances—waste disposal, global warming, the ozone layer, and offshore drilling; mercury, dioxin, radon, CFCs, and the 100 top pesticides
  • Key treaties, conventions, laws, and agreements—the Endangered Species Act, the "big four" conventions, and Superfund
  • Sources of help and information—the individuals and organizations that are really getting things done
  • Plus sidebars, charts, illustrations, and features on items of special interest; recommended reading for adults and children; a guide to acronyms and abbreviations—and much more!
