Summary
"Are we humans destroying the environments in which we live, or is environmental change natural and inevitable? How has the relationship between human societies and environments changed since pre-history? Will human population growth outpace the available resources of land and water? Is global warming and climate change already out of control? What can economic and political models tell us about international development? Changing Environments takes a broad, interdisciplinary approach to such questions, drawing on ideas from science, technology, social science and humanities to consider how and why environments change as a result of natural and human-mediated processes."--BOOK JACKET
