Our more comprehensive text, Environmental Science: Foundations and Applications, takes a non-biased approach to teaching students how to evaluate arguments and make sense of the headlines. Students learn to draw their own conclusions by analyzing facts and data, using critical thinking, and applying simple mathematical calculations.
This version includes an in-chapter feature called Crunch the Numbers that helps students understand key concepts by practicing simple math calculations.

“This text artfully engages the fundamental concepts of environmental science in an approachable yet quantitative manner.”
Bryan G. Mark, The Ohio State University

“It is current and uses examples that a typical American college student can relate to. It explains the basic science and math with every subject which is what makes it a cut above most other texts.”
Karen Gaines, Eastern Illinois University
