Gr 5-9-These titles clearly and objectively depict the environmental disasters that lie ahead if dramatic steps are not taken to ensure a sound future. Although they are British based, they are international in scope and use both information and illustrations from around the world. While both titles present frightening scenarios and statistics, solutions are also offered. In Food, methods of organic farming and ways in which to reduce food miles (the long-distance transportation of foods from production site to consumer) are well presented. Waste discusses innovations in reuse and recycling, ingenious ways to use what would be discarded, and changes in taxation policy. The many full-color photographs clarify the texts. These titles will be highly useful for both reports and in classroom discussions on environmental policy and responsibility.-Eva Elisabeth VonAncken, Trinity-Pawling School, Pawling, NY Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
