Our Endangered Earth: Our Fragile Environment and What We Can Do to Save It

by John J. Langone

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up-- In 11 chapters of clear, understandable, documented exposition, Langone presents environmental problems from ``Too Many Chemicals'' to the generation, misuse, and overuse of energy. Each chapter has the same structure: first, a discussion of ``The Problem'' and then ``Some Solutions.'' What distinguishes this volume from many others on the topic is the lack of fictionalizing and ranting (although some readers will wish he'd decked the greedy people who have gotten rich at the expense of the environment). Almost all sources cited are from 1989 and 1990, and almost all are from fairly accessible periodicals and newspapers such as Time, Commonweal, New Scientist, New York Times, and Christian Science Monitor . Langone's work is a much-needed primer on what's happening to poison or destroy our world and ourselves. Every library should have at least one copy. --George Gleason, Department of English, Southwest Missouri State University, Springfield
