Description

All life on earth is interdependent and depends on its environment to survive. When part of an ecosystem is destroyed or damaged it has a knock on effect on the plants, animals and people who form part of it. Human impact on environments and wildlife is causing environmental problems such as pollution, energy consumption, deforestation and climate change. If these issues are not addressed then it could spell disaster for the Earth. Sustainable development - meeting the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs - offers a viable solution to environmental problems. Using examples from around the world, this book will show how sustainable development can help us to work with environments and not against them. It also suggests some choices the reader can make to ensure a sustainable future. 'Databank' boxes give key facts, 'Opinion' panels highlight quotes from well-known speakers on the subject. There are also weblinks with useful website addresses which link to sites with more information about a particular topic.
