This work, intended for informed, non-technical readers, provides an objective overview of important environmental issues. The book starts with the traditional topics of air, land and water pollution, but also presents newer issues, including solid waste management, the greenhouse effect, electromagnetic fields and questions of environmental equity. The authors also focus on how to prevent the pollution in the first place, rather than on simply cleaning it up afterwards.
