About The Book

INCONVENIENT TRUTH on global warming won the "Oscar" for Vice President A1 Gore and "Nobel Peace Prize" for him together with Dr. Panchauri. This brought global warming and its awareness on centre stage of world activities. The urgency of "impending disaster", "combat equipments" and "future anxiety" requires clear understanding of "Environmental Concerns".
The book "GLOBAL WARMING AND ENVIRONMETNAL CONCERNS" addresses these issues for possible solutions. It traces the past history of evolutions, explains variations in species. It also deals with essential principles of economics, management and legislations to evolve a "Global Action Plan" to preserve resources for future generations.
We have tried to use simple language while dealing with this complex subject. This is with the view that the different dimensions of the subject must reach the masses.
