5.0 out of 5 stars Accessible understanding of a crucial topic and how we can do something about it
Reviewed in the United States on September 6, 2023
Scott Haley makes this crucial topic understandable and accessible to the community. This isn't a dense, academic tome, but it is based on the extensive experience and thorough research of the author, who has taught biology, ecology, environmental science, and physical geography at the college and high school levels, and who has designed and taught a vocational college Environmental Technician Training Program. Currently he is active in several professional associations, including the International Society for Ecological Economics and the International Society for Environmental Ethics. Perhaps despite these impressive credentials, he not only grasps the big picture and makes his arguments compelling and very interesting, but he also offers practical, attainable ways for readers to take action."
