Offers a holistic and well-researched analysis of today's global issues and their impact on human population and the environment.
Written by an international team of specialists, this Atlas illustrates through text and maps, graphics and diagrams the interplay between population and the world's ecosystems and natural resources both in the short and long terms. It brings together a wealth of information from the most up-to-date sources on such key issues as climate change, access to water, exploitation of ocean resources, nuclear energy and waste, renewable energy, weapons of mass destruction, causes of industrial accidents, waste, export, hunger, genetically modified organisms, urban development, access to health care and ecological change in China.
Planet in Peril, which features the English translation of the environment pages of the recently published L'Atlas 2006 by Le Monde diplomatique, is the result of a long-standing cooperation between Le Monde diplomatique and GRID-Arendal.
