Living with the Planet takes a step back from immediate, local matters to remind us of our global interconnectedness. Beginning with an overview of the Earth, its atmosphere and oceans, Catherine von Ruhland takes a detailed look at each continent, covering pertinent issues such as global warming, deforestation, resource exploitation and threatened wildlife. A 'Taking Action' section at the end of each chapter offers a wealth of suggestions for what we can do to make a positive difference. Complete with colour illustrations throughout, this book is a vital read for anyone who wants to learn more about the state of our world and the already visible effects of climate change. Living with the Planet includes: background information on the Earth, its atmosphere and oceans; a continent-by-continent look at the effects of climate change; suggestions for steps we can take to make a positive difference; boxed texts detailing the lives of notable environmentalists, success stories of once-threatened species and important background information; full-colour illustrations and maps.
