Review:

"... an excellent enterprise to encourage discussions about ethical issues in the geoscience community and beyond. Its findings could be useful not just to raise the ethical consciousness of the geoscience community by highlighting its role in coping with environmental risks and uncertain hazards within society, but it could also be a relevant starting point for further interdisciplinary and social science studies in the field." --Hungarian Geographical Bulletin, Geoethics

"I recommend this book to the geoscientist who seeks to protect the earth environment and conserve earth resources and geoheritages for future generations, as well to those who forecast and mitigate geohazards." --The Leading Edge
