Living Downstream: An Ecologist Looks at Cancer and The Environment, Sandra Steingraber
17 Sandra Steingraber Living Downstream: An Ecologist Looks at Cancer and The Environment
Virago 233960 Great Britain 1998 1860495354 / 9781860495359 Softcover Good Condition The first edition of Living Downstream--an exquisite blend of precise science and engaging narrative--set a new standard for scientific writing. Poet, biologist, and cancer survivor, Steingraber uses all three kinds of experience to investigate the links between cancer and environmental toxins. The updated science in this exciting new edition strengthens the case for banning poisons now pervasive in our air, our food, and our bodies. Because synthetic chemicals linked to cancer come mostly from petroleum and coal, Steingraber shows that investing in green energy also helps prevent cancer. Saving the planet becomes a matter of saving ourselves and an issue of human rights. 357 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram.

Forests of Ash: An Environmental History, Tom Griffiths
20 Tom Griffiths Forests of Ash: An Environmental History
Cambridge University Press 240565 Great Britain 2001 0521012341 / 9780521012348 Trade Paperback Very Good Condition This beautifully written book tells the story of Australia's giant eucalypt, the Mountain Ash, which grows in the region north and east of Melbourne. A single tree can reach a height of 120 feet in 20 years, making it the tallest hardwood in the world. While celebrating the steep, wet, dense eastern forests of Australia, Tom Griffiths shows that they can be far from benign. Dependent on fire for their survival, this awesome natural vegetation can become a source of destruction, forcing people to confront their relationship with the bush. Visited seasonally by indigenous people and later a site of mining and saw-milling for settlers, as well as contested ground for conservationists, the life cycles and fire cycles of the forests span millennia. Tom Griffiths tells the environmental, ecological and social history of a unique Australian forest, and, in doing so, tells the story of the continent as a whole. 227 pages. Previous owner name on inside cover . Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: 1-2 kilos. Category: Environment / Planning; Environment & Ecology; ISBN: 0521012341. ISBN/EAN: 9780521012348.
