Are Humans Damaging the Atmosphere?

Car, train, ship or aeroplane – which form of transport is most harmful to the atmosphere? What do farming techniques such as agrochemicals do? What is ‘acid rain’ and what are effects of it? This book takes a look at the impact that our modern world is having on our surrounding environment, from our use of fossil fuels and our increase in global food production and building work, to the rise in our transport production. Discover what steps scientists and engineers, and even ordinary people, are taking to develop sustainable solutions to these problems, from replastering festivals to buildings bound together using horse hair!

Reviews

School Library Connection - Rich Parker, Media Specialist, Fox Chapel Elementary School, Germantown, MD

"...well-captioned photographs and diagrams support the text, as do sidebars. Each volume concludes with interesting “Places to Visit” for those who wish to study further." - School Library Connection

School Library Journal - John Peters, Children's Literature Consultant, New York City

"Frequent sidebars throughout offering closer examinations of particular issues, eyewitness or expert commentary, profiles of scientists, and “Hero or Villain?” counterpoints join well-chosen photos and other illustrations. Readers studying climate change, pollution, natural catastrophes and related subjects will find these studies low on definitive answers, but rich in points to ponder." - School Library Journal
