A superb but worrying read,
This review is from: Something New Under the Sun: An Environmental History of the World in the 20th Century (Global century) (Paperback)
This must be the most readable account of the history of humankind driven environmental change in existence. An excellent and comprehensive review of the full range of human impact on the various spheres of earthly existence. Extensively supported with dates, figures, references and many examples.
If I have one criticism it is that it is easy to be left thinking that no good at all has come from any of the earth shaping endeavours of humankind. However do not that put you off, this book is an excellent lesson in the need for caution before we charge headlong in to the next great ideological earth reshaping project.
