9780007266807: Fragile Earth: What's happening to our planet? (Collins)

Natural disasters, climate change, the exploitation of the world's resources and human development are changing our planet at a relentless pace. Now, using over 200 stunning images from the air, land and space, Fragile Earth brings together the most dramatic natural and man-made events.

Striking views of our changing planet show the extraordinary effects of man and nature. Each set of carefully selected 'before and after' pictures is combined with detailed explanations allowing you to understand exactly what has happened to our planet in the past, and what is likely to happen in the future.

The impacts that natural phenomena have on our planet are detailed in the first few chapters including details on tsunamis, volcanoes and tornadoes. Man's influence on the world is presented with stunning images which outline the impacts that man-made structures have on the earth as well as how man has destroyed what has been created. The effects of nature and man is given in the last few chapters where the massive impact of global warming on our earth is shown. This is especially evident in the remote and vulnerable areas of the world's glaciers and deserts.

Personal views from expert authors in the environmental field outline what the world might look like in the future. This unique book provides a stark look at the catastrophic effects our actions can have on the planet.
