Summary "Sustainable Development and Environmental concerns must keep the values of developing an acceptable ethical system through reflection and criticism, in which science, law, social justice, economics and wisdom have a balance and where humanity can distinguish between right and wrong. This book covers a vast array of subjects in 'Sustainable Development and Environmental Issues' (examined through selected essays, questions and answers). It has avoided as far as possible technical and complex scientific and legal terms in an endeavour to diffuse knowledge to others, such as high school and university students, environmentalists, people involved with earth and sciences, business communities, legal and eco-tourism organisations, and, of course, the general public all over the world. The book examines Sustainable Development largely through the mechanism of environmental philosophy and scientific analysis and such other sustainable developmental topics. By reading the book, which is well referenced, it is hoped that a variety of readers will pursue their interests in Sustainable Development and address Environmental Issues which confront humanity today, and thereby develop a conscious environmental culture of their own."--BLACKWELL'S
