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?

MEDIA REVIEWS
"It offers students possessing little or no prior experience with environmental science a clear, logically ordered overview of "both societal and environmental components of issues" in an "integrated approach." Thus updated version includes expanded material, additional figures and maps, and a new section on atmospheric modeling.... a worthwhile addition to any basic environmental issues course, or as a core reference volume for upper division environmental policy, social ecology, atmospherioc physics, or climatology courses. Kemp's direct style and precise explanations make this book an important contribution to the existing pool of environmental texts.."
-"The Professional Geographer
