Green Issues and Debates: An A-Z Guide

Professor Howard Schiffman authors this complication of over 150 articles. The grayer shades of green are deeply examined, including such heady questions as: Is ethanol production from corn a recipe for famine? Does offshore drilling pose more of a risk to the environment than the problem it solves? Is “clean coal” a viable option or is it simply polluting the energy dilemma? Are genetically modified foods helpful or harmful? Presented in A-to-Z format, the book examines issues brought to the forefront by the green movement with carefully balanced pro and con viewpoints.
