Living with the Planet
Making a Difference in a Time of Climate Change
Living with the Planet takes readers a step back from their daily lives to remind them of their global interconnectedness. Beginning with an overview of the Earth, its atmosphere, and oceans, Catherine von Ruhland next takes a detailed look at each continent, covering pertinent issues such as global warming, deforestation, resource exploitation, and threatened wildlife. A "Taking Action" section at the end of each chapter offers a wealth of suggestions for what we can do to make a positive difference. Complete with color illustrations throughout, this book is a vital resource for anyone who wants to learn more about the state of our world, the already visible effects of climate change, and what we can do for the good of the planet.
