Another book in the "Green Files" series and another successful attempt to explain the causes and effects of pollution. From acids to the ozone layer, everything is explained in this simple, up to date read. Does recycling matter? As you read this book, look at its useful, attractive and sometimes shocking images to help you understand how going green, or not, will hugely affect the planet.

The facts are set out simply, with each chapter describing a different type of pollution : noise, air or nuclear.

Did you know a person travelling by public transport causes up to a hundred times less pollution than a person driving alone in a car?

This book makes you think and gives simple solutions to not polluting and hopefully "with time and effort, the world can be made cleaner and safer from this modern menace".
