Adam Markham (au). The story of how we have polluted our planet, told in a way that links the distant past with the urgent problems of today. Takes readers on a literary & scientific tour of the world of pollution from pre-history to the post-industrial age. Ancient problems such as lead poisoning in Rome & water pollution in Mesopotamia provide the background to a discussion of modern catastrophes incl. the hole in the ozone layer, climate change & the global drinking water crisis. Drawing on the thoughts of authors, he tells how human progress has led to the soiling of air, water & land. Along with consumerism, the development of cities, global population growth & untrammeled industrial expansion have taken their toll. A highly readable account.
