This book examines the behavioral dimensions of global and regional environmental problems such as the greenhouse effect, ozone depletion, deforestation, air pollution, and water pollution. The book asks: What does our knowledge of human behavior tell us about the root causes of environmental problems and about strategies for solving them?
A unique environmental psychology textbook that links environmental science and behavioral science to develop a framework for addressing key questions about human behaviors that harm the environment, to summarize knowledge from psychology and related fields about these behaviors, and to point the way to realistic solutions. Suitable for undergraduates in psychology, social science, and environmental studies and science. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
