Did you know that we use 70% more water today than we did 40 years ago? Or that about 95% of water that gets delivered to our houses goes down the drain? And that a garden hose can use almost as much water in an hour as an average family of four uses in one day? Our population is growing, our climate changing and our lifestyle demands more and more water. Quite simply, we are consuming too much. And with water usage at an all-time high, rationing is round the corner. But the good news is that there are numerous things we can do both at home and at work to reduce our consumption of water, save money and help the environment. This book lists 100 ways in which to do your bit. Tips range from simple measures, such as turning off the tap while you clean your teeth to more drastic ones, such as installing a rainwater harvesting system. Interspersed with "Did you know?" facts and photographs throughout, this pocket guide will transform the way you use water.

This concise introduction to environmental science (a shorter alternative to Miller's Living in the Environment) uses basic and easily understandable scientific laws, principles, and concepts to help students understand environmental and resource problems and the possible solutions to these problems. It includes many full-color illustrations and photographs and a writing style that is clear, personal, and lively. Extensive reviewing by hundreds of experts and Miller's careful research covering more than 20,000 sources ensure the text's accuracy and currency. During the early 1970s, Miller's texts helped shape and define the environmental science course. Today, they are best sellers used by thousands of students across the country. This new edition is a major revision--the most extensive since the first edition was published. Each chapter is thoroughly revised and some detail has been added. The book's 460 illustrations are designed to present complex ideas in understandable ways and to relate learning to the real world.
