Living in the Environment, Fourth Canadian Edition is designed to equip students with the inspiration and knowledge they need to make a difference in solving today’s environmental issues in Canada and globally. The text is science-based, and solutions-oriented, and provides an interdisciplinary study of how nature works and how things in nature are interconnected. The authors present fair and balanced presentations of opposing viewpoints, advantages and disadvantages of various technologies, and proposed solutions to environmental problems without injecting personal bias, allowing students to think critically and draw their own conclusions about important environmental issues. With over 150 illustrations, maps, and animations, the text has been designed to present complex ideas in understandable ways that relate learning to the real world. Environmental issues are looked at from both Canadian and global perspectives, from the development of Alberta’s oil sands to reactions to the 2015 Paris Agreement on climate change. Comparisons and contrasts between North America and other countries such as China, India, Brazil, Nigeria, the Netherlands, and many more continue to be an important aspect of this fourth Canadian edition.
