Environment  (ISBN-10: 1615358374 | ISBN-13: 9781615358373)

Updated for 2013, the Environment is one title in the Britannica Illustrated Science Library Series. It does not take an expert in environmental science to realize that the world is changing. Is it getting warmer? It depends on where you live. Global warming does not necessarily mean that where you live it will be warmer. For most of the people on the planet, the changes to the climate are virtually imperceptible. That is not the case for many plants and animals, however. These are some of the topics covered by this book. The purpose of this book is to make you aware of various environmental challenges and their possible solutions. Once we begin to understand a given environmental issue, each one of us can begin to evaluate our own actions and change them if necessary to protect life on this planet.
