Facts on File
Global warming, air pollution, and endangered species are newsworthy topics because each of these issues affects our economy, our health, and government policy. Climate changes are thought by many to contribute to alterations in weather and ocean currents, causing stronger hurricanes, droughts, and flooding. Air pollution, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, affects more than 150 million Americans living in areas with unhealthy air quality. And although plants and animals have been going extinct for millions of years, it is the rate at which some species are becoming endangered today that is alarming to many scientists. By linking basic science to real-world headlines, The Environment in the News helps readers understand how they are both involved in and affected by these issues. This book also presents a history of the topics in question and offers readers the knowledge necessary to make informed decisions from which policies to support to which environmentally friendly lifestyles to consider.
