   schema:reviewBody ""A lucidly written and thorough approach to comprehending pollution issues, Understanding Environmental Pollution systematically addresses the spectrum of these issues, from global stratospheric ozone depletion to personal pollution in the home. Dr. Hill identifies pollutants and their sources, addresses the risks to humans and the environment, and discusses what is being done to reduce emissions. Throughout, she applies four tests to the relevant issue: What are the pollutants of concern; why are they of concern; to what sources do humans risk exposure; how are emissions of the pollutants being reduced?" "Although it focuses on the United States, this text considers the global implications of local pollution and stresses both individual and corporate responsibility. The book provides basic concepts in toxicology and risk assessment along with dissenting opinions on major issues." "In presenting the facts and offering a variety of opinions, this book enables curious undergraduate students to evaluate environmental problems, realizing that there may not be a "right" answer. It is a perfect text for introducing students to pollution problems and to earth science."--Jacket." ;
