Global warming. Renewable energy. Hazardous waste. Carbon footprints. These and other environmental topics are being discussed and debated more vigorously than ever. Colin Baird and Michael Cann's "Environmental Chemistry" is the only textbook that explores the chemical processes and properties underlying these crucial issues at an accessible, introductory level (only general chemistry is a prerequisite).
