No other species in Earth's history has been able to disregard the natural laws that govern population size quite like humans have. But population growth has come with an increase in resource consumption, which has created a number of environmental problems: Farmland is being degraded, fresh water is becoming polluted, fish are being overharvested, forests are being flattened, fossil fuel emissions are driving global warming, and the list goes on. Many scientists suggest that society must now develop sustainably, improving the current economic and social circumstances while protecting the environment for future generations.

Chelsea House titles offer informative, well written introductions to a wide variety of subjects.
