Description - People and the Earth by John J. W. Rogers

People and the Earth examines the numerous ways in which this planet enhances and limits our lifestyles. The authors look at the geologic restrictions on our ability to withdraw resources - food, water, energy, and minerals - from the earth, the effect human activity has on the Earth, and the lingering damage caused by natural disasters. People and the Earth examines the basic components of our interaction with this planet, provides a lucid, scientific discussion of each issue, and speculates on what the future may hold. It provides the fundamental concepts that will enable us to make wise and conscientious choices on how to live our day-to-day lives. Written with wit and remarkable insight, and illustrated with numerous case histories, this book provides a balanced view of the complex environmental issues facing our civilization. People and the Earth is an ideal introductory textbook and will also appeal to the general reader concerned with our evolving relationship with the earth.
