Although discussions about the global environment are now a daily occurrence--from companies touting energy-saving products to politicians debating how to best address the issue of climate change and other environmental concerns--it remains a topic plagued by misinformation and ideologically skewed arguments. For more than twenty years, Global Environmental Politics has provided an up-to-date, accurate, and unbiased introduction to the worldas most pressing environmental issues, and this new edition continues the tradition. With new material on the latest international environmental regimes, the 2012 UN Conference on Sustainable Development, the challenges of regime implementation, and the impact of the global economic crises on the global environment, the authors offer a comprehensive overview of the environment and international politics. It is vital reading for anyone wishing to understand the current state of the field and to make informed decisions about which policies might best safeguard our environment for the future.World Bank, aForests and Forestry, a accessed September 28, 2012, go.worldbank .org/VIQE69YFZO. 137. ....
