Description

The total estimated damage from greenhouse gas, acid rain, atmospheric pollution, and other man made changes to the environment is of staggering proportions. This clearly points out a need for presentation of the worldwide research results about the environmental effect of the above listed factors and their possible remediation. To that end, this book advances the present state of our knowledge and understanding of the environment and also serves as a basis for thoughtful debate and positive action for the preservation of our biosphere.
