About this book

The third edition of this well-received textbook delivers a concise overview of global and individual environmental pollution for undergraduate courses, presenting students with the tools to assess environmental issues.

The author assesses pollution from an international perspective, including air and water pollution, global warming, energy, solid and hazardous waste, and pollution at home. Both the sources and impacts of pollution are addressed, as well as governmental, corporate and personal responsibility for pollution whilst pollution prevention is emphasized throughout. Non-technical language encourages greater understanding of these often complex issues.
