MetadataShow full item record
The Earth is surrounded by a halo of atmosphere; all life depends on the integrity of this thin layer of air. Large quantities of all kinds of materials are pouring into the atmosphere without knowledge of long-term effects. Ozone depletion, greenhouse warming, acid rain, nuclear winter, and ground-level pollution are only a few of the identified hazards. This book acts as a comprehensive and comprehensible guide on these dangers to the environment.
