How can we make sense of environmental issues in all their complexity? Why have these issues become so pressing? "Understanding Environmental Issues" provides the tools necessary to answer these questions. The chapters focus upon particular places or issues as a way of introducing readers to a range of approaches to environmental study. The book provides some of the necessary background and skills which will help readers make sense of issues from changes in climate to genetic modification, from species extinction to understanding the risk. The themes of change, contest and response are highlighted. The importance of time and space values, power and action, and risk and uncertainty to environmental issues are carefully explained and demonstrated. Frequent activities encourage readers to develop their skills and appreciation of the issues. The text is richly illustrated with examples from the UK, India, Brazil, Mexico, USA and Pacific Islands.
