About the Book

Do your students think that the “Ozone Hole” is a grunge rock club? Or that the “Food Web” is an online restaurant guide? Or that the “Green Revolution” happened in Greenland? Then they need The Cartoon Guide to the Environment to put them 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.
