The American West at risk : science, myths, and politics of land abuse and recovery by Howard Gordon Wilshire( )

12 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 1,610 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book summarizes the dominant human-generated environmental challenges in the 11 contiguous arid western United States. When discovered by European explorers and later settlers, the West boasted rich soils, bountiful fisheries, immense, dense forests, sparkling streams, untapped ore deposits, and oil bonanzas. It now faces depletion of many of these resources, and potentially serious threats to its few renewable resources. This book focuses on a human land use or activity that depletes resources and degrades environmental integrity of this area. The activities include forest clearing for many purposes; farming and grazing; mining for aggregate, metals, and other materials; energy extraction and use; military training and weapons manufacturing and testing; road and utility transmission corridors; recreation; urbanization; and disposing of waste. It shows how these land-degrading activities are connected to natural earth processes, which act to accelerate and spread the damages we inflict on the land
Volcanoes : global perspectives by John P Lockwood( Book )

25 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 664 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Volcanoes maintains three core foci: Global perspectives explain volcanoes in terms of their tectonic positions on Earth and their roles in earth history; environmental perspectives describe the essential role of volcanism in the moderation of terrestrial climate and atmosphere; humanitarian perspectives discuss the major influences of volcanoes on human societies. This latter is especially important as resource scarcities and environmental issues loom over our world, and as increasing numbers of people are threatened by volcanic hazards.--From publisher's description
