Dirty Planet The Friends of the Earth Guide to Pollution and What You Can Do About it by Caroline Clayton

Car bans in Mexico City. Oxygen bars in Beijing. Genetically modified Frankenstein food almost everywhere. Dirty Planet gives you the low-down on the most pressing of the Earth's pollution problems and tells you exactly who is to blame - industry and governments around the world. But don't despair! You can make a real difference with the big clean-up, and this book tells you how. Featuring accounts of work young women have done to help save the planet - from working with Surfers Against Sewage in Cornwall to creating a bullfrog sanctuary in South Africa - and with easy, practical tips to make your home, school and neighbourhood more green and influence your local council and government, Dirty Planet aims to help make the Earth a better place.
