    Authors:
    Terence Conran
    Buildings are the biggest polluters on the planet, responsible for a far greater proportion of the carbon dioxide emissions that get pumped into the atmosphere every year than cars, planes or factories. Just as we are urged to change our lifestyles to reduce our carbon footprint and consumption of water, there is a great deal we can do to convert our existing homes into greener, healthier places to live. Most homes, even those built relatively recently, are not decorated, designed, constructed or serviced with eco-friendliness in mind. But you don't have to start from scratch to make a huge difference to the way your home impacts on the environment. From relatively small and economic changes to more dramatic overhauls, there has never been a better time to turn your home green.Environmental issues should be part of every decision you make on the home front - from selecting fabric for soft furnishings to designing and siting a home extension. Including tips, advice on material choices and design directions, Eco House Book provides all the information you need to reduce your home's carbon footprint and in the process directly improve the quality of your life.

    Endangered

    By George C. Mcgavin
    Authors:
    George C. Mcgavin
    There have been at least five great extinctions in the history of the Earth where up to 95 per cent of all species have been wiped out in one event. The causes are attributed to massive volcanic eruptions, disastrous meteor strikes, and rapid climatic change. "Endangered" describes these events, but its main thesis is reserved for the potential sixth great extinction, attributable to mankind. Beautifully illustrated, "Endangered" looks at those species which have become extinct or which are so severely threatened that they soon will if we do not apply more international rational restraint upon the way we exploit our environment. However, this is more than a scare-mongering book designed to exploit guilt and anxiety, it is a celebration of the variety of nature and hopeful guide to a future world, safe for all species. Unimpeachable authorship, extraordinary photography and compelling yet objective text make this book essential to any Natural History reading list in the twenty-first century. "Endangered" is seeking endorsement from the world wildlife fund for nature.
