Description - Earth Odyssey by Mark Hertsgaard

As the 20th century draws to a close, a significant group of observers - scientists, business leaders, government officials - see the handwriting on the global wall warning of impending ecological collapse and the subsequent effect on the human race. This work tests that view, looking at what humans are actually doing to the environment and where such behaviour will lead. The topics the book evaluates are pressing; how much of a danger do environmental hazards pose to the future well-being of the human species, and how is humanity faring in its struggle against these hazards? Will human civilization still exist in 100 years from now? Or will our species have been wiped out by disasters of its own making? Mark Hertsgaard travels from Bangkok to the Brazilian rain forests and from Chernobyl to Chongging in China (probably the most polluted place on Earth) to report at first hand what is happening in these environmental disaster zones.
