Publisher Comments:

Do you think that the Ozone Hole is a grunge rock club? Or that the Food Web is an on-line restaurant guide? Or that the Green Revolution happened in Greenland? Then you need The Cartoon Guide to the Environment to put you on the road to environmental literacy. The Cartoon Guide to the Environment covers the main topics of environmental science: chemical cycles, life communities, food webs, agriculture, human population growth, sources of energy and raw materials, waste disposal and recycling, cities, pollution, deforestation, ozone depletion, and global warming—and puts them in the context of ecology, with discussions of population dynamics, thermodynamics, and the behavior of complex systems.

Synopsis:

For those who think the Ozone Hole is a grunge rock band or that the Green Revolution happened in Greenland, this helpful, often hilarious book provides the perfect introduction to the world of environmental literacy. From chemical cycles to life communities to food webs to pollution, deforestation, and global warming, Gonnick explains environmental concepts in layman's terms and explains their relevance and relationship to the planet's ecology. Cartoons throughout.
