About this book

This book asks the questions about environmental pollution: What is it? What is its impact? What are the causes and how can we mitigate them?

More than this, the second edition of this bestseller stimulates new ways to think about the issues and their possible solutions by presenting common-sense approaches and practical examples based on scientific principles, models, and observations, but keeps the text lively and understandable to scientists and non-scientists alike.
