Summary

This book, requiring little background in science, examines environmental concerns in four broad areas: energy, the atmosphere, the hydrosphere, and the biosphere. The authors provide scientific insight into such issues as: dwindling natural gas and petroleum resources; fission and fusion as energy sources; CO2 build-up and the green-house effect; automobile emission control; acid rain; toxic waste disposal; lead, mercury, and cadmium poisoning; and environmental links to cancer.

The book presents both sides of these controversial issues in view of the science and technology involved. It provides the reader with a balanced understanding of today’s environmental debates. (Problem sets are included and an answer manual is available.)

Thomas G. Spiro is Professor in the Department of Chemistry at Princeton University. William M. Stigliani is Research Associate, Atmospheric Research Center, State University of New York at Albany.
