The Environment and You gives you reason to be hopeful about environmental challenges. The authors draw on their pedagogical expertise and classroom experience to help you establish a reliable foundation in science. They also strive to inspire students like yourself, connecting the course to choices you can make as citizens and demonstrating the role science can play in influencing personal, community, and global environmental issues. The authors convey their belief that we can all change the world in directions that are truly sustainable and that you will be part of that process of change.

With the 3rd Edition, You Decide discussions provide complex environmental issues that prompt you to consider options and take a position. New Misconceptions address common misunderstandings and push you to examine evidence that contradicts your opinions and ideas.
