As the population continues to rise and the management of the earth's resources becomes even more critical, Living on Earth examines the issues facing our increasingly interdependent world. Living on Earth presents riveting features and commentary on everything from culture, economics, and technology to health, law, food, and transportation. It covers topics from the small challenges of everyday life to the future state of the environment and the health and well-being of the world's inhabitants.
Curwood and company draw from an impressive array of experts, commentators, and journalists, including Neil deGrasse Tyson, director of New York's Hayden Planetarium; Mark Hertsgaard, author of Earth Odyssey; Janet Raloff of Science News; author Sy Montgomery; and award-winning producer Terry Fitzpatrick.
