"Entries, written by 160 contributors, present debates, trends, viewpoints, and challenges for the green culture . . . this work covers proactive movements and works like 'Environmental Justice,' 'Green Publishing Efforts,' 'Green Jobs,' 'Carbon Footprint,' the 'Creation Care Movement,' and 'Biofuels.' Articles that pertain to states (volume 3) present an overview, then illustrate issues (e.g., pollution), challenges (e.g., population growth), and solutions to environmental problems (e.g., sustainability). This set is excellent for exhibiting the positive perspectives of green initiatives in America."
