A comprehensive directory where teachers can search by grade level and curriculum interest for class trips or assembly programs.
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.
