Given today’s concern with the state of the environment, an understanding of the forces that shape Earth has never been more important. Available in paperback for the first time, Planet Earth is an authoritative and visually engaging look at this planet we call home, from the forces that made it to its environments, weather, landscapes, resources, and the impact humans continue to have on its fragile processes. Throughout, readers will find callouts, links, and quotes to take their exploration beyond the book. A final chapter covers the things we can all do to save Earth for future generations.
