About this book

William H. Schlesinger believes that scientists have a duty to translate scientific research for non-specialists and he has a particular talent for doing so. The author of numerous scientific papers and two textbooks, he has also written hundreds of newspaper and magazine pieces, blog entries, and radio scripts that explain complex environmental issues.

This engaging book draws together many of his general-interest writings, on topics ranging from climate change and species extinction to human population dynamics. In accessible language peppered with personal anecdotes he explores the origin of contemporary environmental problems and in many cases offers solutions.
