About this title

Synopsis:

This environmental book combines photography with the writings of 200 international scientists and celebrities - from the world of arts, film and politics. Each chapter includes environmental success stories and plots the progress being made against the ravages of pollution and over-exploitation. This book is inspired by the premise that the 1990s are probably the last chance to protect the Earth in a state worth passing on to our children. Jonathon Porritt is the author of "Seeing Green, the Politics of Ecology Explained".

From Publishers Weekly:

Next June Brazil will host a U.N. Earth Summit to discuss worldwide environmental policies. This handsomely illustrated volume is a companion to Turner Broadcasting's six-hour special program concerning the conference. Porritt, an environmental advocate in Britain, sets the stage and contributes a piece on population. Norman Myers, Lester Brown, Stephen Schneider, David Bellamy, Robin Hanbury-Tenison write about rain forests, croplands, global warming, wetlands and tribal peoples. Other environmentalists discuss rural resources, oceans, mountains, rivers and lakes, shorelines and estuaries, biodiversity. Each topic is accompanied by dramatic color photographs, elaborate graphics and quotations from international celebrities and leaders. The book sends a powerful message that shows effectively where we stand in relation to the health of the earth.
