Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“This book on science and policy undoubtedly deserves a wide audience of people interested in the environment.” (International Journal of Environment and pollution, 1 November 2012)

“I highly recommend the thought provoking and solutions oriented book Global Environmental Issues, 2nd Edition edited by Frances Harris, to anyone involved in environmental science, geography, industry leaders, public policy makers, government officials, environmental NGOs, community groups, non-profit organizations, academics, and students at all levels who are seeking a clear and concise examination of the many faceted issues surrounding environmental problems. This book will guide decision makers and everyday people toward real solutions that consider all points of view in an inclusive and understanding manner.” (Blog Business World, 16 August 2012)
