Global Pollution published by Tick Tock Books
“Deserves reading and makes you think and worry.”
In 2010 I wrote Global Pollution, a title which uses news stories and the latest research to explore environmental issues. With profiles of scientists from around the world, the book was part of a series called 21st Century Science aimed at readers aged 11+.
The Association of British Science Writers gave a good summary of the content: “This full-colour book takes high-profile news stories like Hurricane Katrina, the Bhopal leak, the ozone-layer hole and whale strandings, and uses them to introduce the science behind pollution of the air, land, water and climate. Each chapter also includes interviews with scientists working to understand and combat pollution, plus profiles of pollution-busting projects such as using llama droppings to treat contaminated water in Bolivia, or investigating whether the plastics used in trainers might be causing genetic abnormalities.”
