School Library Journal Review

Gr 6-8-- These works fill a need for clear, interesting, and nonhysterical coverage of the environmental problems facing tomorrow's adults. In Acid Rain , the causes and effects of the issue are carefully discussed with the emphasis on Europe and Scandinavia. The balanced reporting does not place blame but suggests actions that may be helpful in combating future destruction. In Conserving Rain Forests , the complicated problems of world ecology and Third World economy are addressed. Showing how the destruction of rain forests throughout the world results in harm to plants, animals, and humans on a global scale, Banks goes beyond simple concerns of pollution and erosion to more complicated ethical issues. Profusely illustrated with excellent full-color photographs, these two books will be of value for both research and general information. --Eva Elisabeth Von Ancken, Trinity Pawling School, NY (c) Copyright 2010.
