Environmental Disasters, Natural Recovery and Human Responses
Environmental Disasters, Natural Recovery and Human Responses
Natural disasters destroy more property and kill more people each passing year. Volcanic eruptions, hurricanes, tsunamis, floods, earthquakes, landslides, fires and other natural events are becoming more frequent and their consequences more devastating. In Environmental Disasters, Natural Recovery and Human Responses, Del Moral and Walker provide a comprehensive summary of the diverse ways in which natural disasters disrupt humanity and how humans cope. Growing human numbers, shrinking resources and intensification of the consequences of natural disasters have produced a crisis of unparalleled proportions. The authors provide a template for improving restoration to show how relatively simple approaches can enhance both human well-being and that of the other species on the planet. The book will appeal to ecologists, land managers as well as anyone curious about the natural world and natural disasters.
Unnatural Disasters: Case Studies of Human-Induced Environmental Catastrophes
Unnatural Disasters: Case Studies of Human-Induced Environmental Catastrophes
Unnatural Disasters is a reference resource that describes both the scientific background and the economic and social issues that resulted from environmental disasters resulting primarily from human activity. Categorised by the type of tragedy, including coal mine tragedies, dam failures, industrial explosions, and oil spills, this one-stop guide provides students with descriptions of some of the world's most tragic environmental disasters. Entries clearly describe each disaster by defining the cause, the consequences, and the clean-up efforts. Readers will learn who the responsible parties were, the effect on the environment and people living in the immediate area, and the economic impact of each disaster. In addition, the long-term consequences, the likelihood of a repeat disaster in the same area, and the measures that have been taken to prevent a repeat incident are discussed. Entries include the Chernobyl nuclear power plant explosion, the Exxon-Valdez oil spill, the atomic bomb at Hiroshima , and the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001.

Our Final Hour: A Scientist's Warning--How Terror, Error, and Environmental Disaster Threaten Humankind's Future in This Century--On E
Our Final Hour: A Scientist's Warning--How Terror, Error, and Environmental Disaster Threaten Humankind's Future in This Century--On E
From world-renowned astrophysicist Sir Martin Rees, a timely, brisk, and alarming look at the way today's technology could spell the end of tomorrow. Bolstered by unassailable science, Our Final Hour's provocative argument that humanity has a mere 50-50 chance of surviving the next century has struck a chord with readers, reviewers, and opinion-makers everywhere. Rees's vision of our immediate future is both a work of stunning scientific originality and a humanistic clarion call on behalf of the future of life.
