Format: Paperback
This is a great book with which to teach science. It gets and keeps the attention of teenagers who have the attention span of a gnat. Each chapter is a great overview and summation of a unit that I teach at some time during the year.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By hharper@valdosta.edu on April 17 1999
Format: Paperback
Kids will tend to ignore this book because it is too serious for a comic book and they will believe it is a klutzy attempt by adults to sneak up on kids with something educational. They are mistaken. Adults may, with a glance, dismiss this book as being for kids. They should know better. It is a systematic approach using pictures and limited captions to explain the basics of environmental science. It also uses Gonick's humor, sometimes-- ahem-- mature humor, and charming cartoonery.
Not as good perhaps as some of Gonick's other works-- due to limitations posed by a difficult topic for him to do-- it is still pure Gonick and worth the money and worth keeping (or giving to a kid or adult).

Format: Paperback
Great disappointment... particularly on Global Warming. The author should drop the cheap quasi-scientific bubbles of the conservative anti-GW establishment and go read some real science. Less science should not "balance" good science merely to serve petty political correctness. I recommend to the author attention to the frequent publications of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). It has been established by WMO and UNEP to assess scientific, technical and socio- economic information relevant for the understanding of climate change, its potential impacts and options for adaptation and mitigation.
1 star for the cartoon work.

Environmental Science and Cartoons Sept. 27 2005
By B. C. Bodas - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Great book as a break from the normal Environmental science textbooks. A funny and informative look at many of the key ideas and concepts related to environmental science. Many of the cartoons are also useful for teaching biological science. Don't be fooled, some of the cartoons demonstrate fairly advanced ideas, but in a humerous and entertaining fashion.

Well-written, fun-to-learn comic book. Aug. 11 2005
By Time Traveller - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Rarely do I post anything on the web, but I feel obligated to do so now in defense of this author. Global Warming is covered on pages 64, 201-3, and 207 as listed in the index. Ozone Depletion, page 199 & Acid Rain, page 198.
