Breakdown of Climate (P)
Besorgung - Lieferbarkeit unbestimmt
BeschreibungOur survival depends on our relationship with the natural climate -- a relationship has now been damaged by human activities such as deforestation and environmental pollution. Peter Bunyard gives a clear overall picture of climate, from its origins to the present day, comparing the cause and effects of evolutionary changes with human influences. He explains how weather systems function, and how certain modern industrial and agricultural practices put these processes at risk. His suggestions for alternatives offer real hope to all those genuinely concerned about the increased violence and occurrence of natural disasters.
PortraitPeter Bunyard is one of the founding editors of The Ecologist and a writer and lecturer on ecological issues. He edited Gaia in Action, an anthology based on the Camelford Conferences for Gaia Theory.
