MEDIA REVIEWS
`...the book treats a wide range of extremely complex issues, including Third World development etc. ... has attempted not only to save our planet, but also to ensure equal standards of living for all, within an equitable global market.'
Journal of Ecotechnology
`Indivdual subsections are packed with facts and figures ... Interspersed with useful illustrations...pulls no punches, it presents, in a no-nonsense way, what our species has done to the Earth and what we are continuing to do ... the lack of patronising or sexist terminology is refreshing ... For any individual working in an Environmental field who wishes to have an authoritative source of facts and figures to support a presentation, or parry another's argument, this is a valuable work. I also congratulate the author and editors on collecting and collating such a vast treasury of scientific data.'
Environmental Protection Bulletin
`Whatever interest readers may have in the environment, whether it be in atmospheric pollution, environmental disasters, population growth, or environmental legislation, they are likely to find something of interest ... a quick reference book on the state of our planet.'
