NOW IN ITS NINTH EDITION, ECONOMICS AND THE ENVIRONMENT OFFERS AN ACCESSIBLE APPROACH TO THE LATEST DEBATES, CONCERNS, STANDARDS, AND LEGISLATION RELATED TO CONTEMPORARY ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES. FEATURING NEW AND UPDATED CONTENT THROUGHOUT, THIS STUDENT-FRIENDLY TEXTBOOK ORGANIZES ITS DISCUSSION AROUND FOUR SPECIFIC QUESTIONS - HOW MUCH POLLUTION IS TOO MUCH? IS THE GOVERNMENT UP TO THE JOB? HOW CAN WE DO BETTER? HOW CAN WE RESOLVE GLOBAL ISSUES? - TO PROVIDE AN INCLUSIVE AND HIGHLY-ENGAGING EXAMINATION OF ENVIRONMENTAL ECONOMICS. FOLLOWING A UNIQUE FOUR-QUESTION FORMAT, THE TEXT PROVIDES AN INTEGRATED PEDAGOGY THAT IS SIMPLER AND MORE USEFUL THAN A "TOPICS" APPROACH TO THE SUBJECT. STUDENTS ARE ENCOURAGED TO DISCUSS THE GOVERNMENT´S ROLE IN ENVIRONMENTAL POLICY, THE BENEFITS AND COSTS OF ENVIRONMENTAL PROTECTION, METHODS FOR PROMOTING CLEAN TECHNOLOGY AND SUSTAINABILITY, GLOBAL POLLUTION AND RESOURCE ISSUES, ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE AND ETHICS, AND MORE. THROUGHOUT THE TEXT, ILLUSTRATIVE EXAMPLES AND REAL-WORLD CASE STUDIES ARE COMPLEMENTED BY END-OF-CHAPTER PROBLEMS AND EXERCISES THAT BOTH STRENGTHEN STUDENT COMPREHENSION AND INCREASE RETENTION.
