Is the answer to sea-level rise the building of higher flood defences? Does it matter if tigers go extinct? Can we afford to wait to see if genetically modified crops pose a hazard to environments or should they be banned before the evidence is in? These are just some of the questions which are addressed in Understanding Environmental Issues. Blending insights from science, social science, arts and technology, this book takes a unique and groundbreaking approach to environmental questions. By introducing a set of themes and analytical tools, readers will be able to approach a range of environmental questions with important insights which will allow them to make reasoned and informed arguments.

Topics include climate change, nuclear waste disposal, extinction, biodiversity conservation, genetically modified crops, international development
Cross-cutting topics include environmental change, environmental conflicts, environmental hazards and risk, and environmental values
frequent activities encourage readers to develop their skills and appreciation of the issues
the text is richly illustrated with examples from Brazil, India, Mexico, the Pacific Islands, the UK and US.

The book is part of a series entitled Environment: Change, Contest and Response. The series forms a significant part of an interdisciplinary Open University course on environmental matters. The other books in the series are:
Changing Environments
