"This makes his volume a good complement to some other works that address topics like global warming, energy choices, water scarcity, and biodiversity loss, which are not emphasized here....There is a good selection of end-of-chapter references, and most of them are from very recent research, mainly since 2000. Overall, a valuable resource for libraries seeking a more current discussion of this topic for their collection. Summing Up: Recommended. Undergraduate and graduate students." -
