Informative, suitably judgmental without being intrinsically so, and pleasantly rich in statistical backup...The major troublespots are well covered, such as forest loss and biodiversity, Antarctica, and the global warming debate, and a host often tendentious environment-development conflicts across the globe... and it is firmly up to date even in this very rapidly changing world.
