If you have minimal or no science background, environmental geology may be one of the only science courses you ever take. Living With Earth: An Introduction to Environmental Geology is ideal for students just like you. It fosters a better understanding of how you interact with Earth and how your actions can affect Earth’s environmental health. Informal and reader-friendly, this book is organized around a few unifying perspectives: how the various Earth systems interact with one another; how Earth affects people (creating hazards but also providing essential resources); and how people affect Earth. Greater emphasis is placed on environment and sustainability than on geology, unlike other texts on the subject.
