Abstract
This series illustrates the desperate need for a balance between the needs of people and the environment to ensure a healthy, productive society. Three main themes are intertwined, dwindling farmland due to urban development, a shortage of water for the residents of huge cities, and the pollution of and human intervention in waterways. This second series looks at environmental issues in a new way, without regard for national, political or cultural boundaries. The third series investigates a growing national security threat throughout the world, how environmental pressures can lead to terrorism and regional conflict., examines the devastating environmental, political and economic effects of the degradation of the world's grasslands, examines how recent trends in globalization and the altering of ecosystems have led to dramatic increases in the spread of infectious diseases.
