Environmental issues, such as climate change and energy consumption, and our responses to them are of global concern. The underlying premise of the book is that while global environmental issues may be the result of natural and/or human-induced resource degradation, their root causes are due to more than just ecological factors and technological errors or problems. Biophysical environmental problems are often exacerbated by economic, social or political problems.

Global Environmental Issues views global environmental problems as complex issues with a network of causes, influenced by a range of actors with differing priorities.

In addition to discussing the main biophysical causes, the book will illustrate how socio-economic and political factors determine why and how people use land, resources and technology, and how this in turn affects natural resource management. Each chapter interlinks human demands on the Earth’s resources to natural biophysical change Includes global case studies which contextualise theory for students Identifies stakeholders with an interest in each issue and how their perceptions of the problems, and the appropriate solutions, vary Challenges readers to consider how choices made in our own environment affect livelihoods across the globe

With an increased interest in the causes and consequences of environmental problems, this book will meet the needs of 2nd/3rd year undergraduates and Masters students within departments of environmental science and geography, who want a book that tackles the complexity of environmental change.
