Description

Environmental issues are among the most profound challenges of the 21st century. The widespread degradation of the earth's air, water, soil and diversity of species is already compromising the quality of life for many on earth and, in the extreme, threatens the fundamental organic infrastructure of life on the planet. Participating effectively in global environmental policy requires a sound grounding not only in governmental affairs but in the broader array of political forces that shape collective life. The field of global environmental politics focuses on these dimensions through international diplomacy, sustainable development, environmental ethics, international political economy and environmental justice. This book gathers the latest research in this dynamic field of study and highlights topics such as the impact of bioenergy on the global environment, sustainable food production and distribution, wood fuels use for sustainable energy, the state of air pollution in North Korea in comparison with South Korea, possible ways the suite of environmental accounting tools can contribute to the development and implementation of environmental policies, and the effect of global warming and climate change on water quality.
