Global Environmental Issues

Global Environmental Issues
Selections from CQ Researcher

May 2010 | 336 pages | CQ Press

Do carbon offsets slow climate change?
Will the growing competition for energy trigger new international conflicts?
Should water be privatized?
Will global warming increase species losses?
Can individual action significantly reduce global climate change

Global Environmental Issues, drawn from recent reports from CQ Press’s award-winning CQ Researcher, takes up these and other compelling questions. Each selection explores who the key players are and what’s at stake, skillfully covering the range of perspectives and scholarship surrounding an issue and preparing students to engage in the debate.

Features include a pro/con box, chronology, annotated bibliography, web resources, photos, charts, graphs, and maps.

Excellent resource that can be used to enhance understanding and promote intellectual curiosity regarding the wider global issues impacting health and social welfare.
