In a modern society, it is easy to forget that our society depends largely on the environmental processes that govern our world. Environment refers to an aggregate of surroundings in which living beings such as humans, animals, and plants live and non-living things exist. It includes air, water, land, living organisms, and materials surrounding us. The environment is an important part of our daily lives. Environmental issues are now part of every career path and employment area. Environmental science is an interdisciplinary field that applies principles from all the known technologies and sciences to study the environment and provide solutions to environmental problems. It is the study of how the earth works and how we can deal with the environmental issues we face. There is an ever demanding need for experts in this field because the environment is responsible for making our world beautiful and habitable. For this reason, environmental science is now being taught at high schools and higher institutions of learning. Education on environmental science will empower the youths to take an active role in the world in which they live.

What do we do when a formerly vibrant back-to-the-Bible movement drifts into a toxic swamp rimmed with attack dogs? Charles Redfern faces that grim question squarely. He discovers that American evangelical Christianity, which surged in the mid-twentieth century and offered a more genteel, intellectually vigorous alternative to caustic fundamentalism, fell into the hands of intimidators and backbiters. It was a short journey from there to the movement’s partisan sell-out and the abandonment of time-honored creeds. Redfern describes his own story, in which he came into the faith at the movement’s height in the 1970s, then views evangelicalism’s decay across its spectrum. He doesn’t spare conflict-adverse moderates in the process. But he also discovers hope: A winsome remnant survives, and its wooing the back-to-the-Bible people back to the Bible, bearing the fruits of the Holy Spirit as they do so.

Welfare Economics and Sustainable Development theme is a component of Encyclopedia of Development and Economic Sciences in the global Encyclopedia of Life Support Systems (EOLSS), which is an integrated compendium of twenty one Encyclopedias. This theme introduces welfare economics and sustainable development in four topics dealing with four important issues to be considered in implementing sustainable development. These are: the use of ethics and discounting and economic growth models in balancing the interests of future generations against those of the present; the advantages and limitations of national accounting methodologies as means of evaluating sustainability; the international dimensions of sustainable development arising out of environmental and economic linkages among nations; and the nature of institutions required to promote sustainable development. These two volumes are aimed at the following five major target audiences: University and College students Educators, Professional practitioners, Research personnel and Policy analysts, managers, and decision makers and NGOs.

This book focuses on the application of sustainable development principles through consultation with, and partnerships between commerce and the community. Offering international perspectives, the authors show that the issues are global and that we can best arrive at solutions through a synthesis of these various perspectives. The book also examines changes to corporate and institutional behavior and discusses the extent to which the focus has changed, making it necessary to consider new approaches to our understanding of sustainability and differing effects in practice. This approach is based on the tradition of the Social Responsibility Research Network, which in its 17-year history has sought to broaden the discourse and to treat all research as inter-related and relevant to business. This book consists of the best contributions from the 17th International Conference on Corporate Social Responsibility and 8th Organisational Governance Conference, held in Bangalore, India in September 2018

Volume 1 outlines water supply infrastructure. The requirements for supplying water to a home, a city or a factory can be very different. Experts in these fields explain the nuances of the details involved in maintaining adequate quantity and quality for these different consumers. Waste water management can be of even greater concern, yet its management can follow similar paths when compared to sophisticated water supply treatment. Both the physics and chemistry of these fields are fully covered. Volume 2 deals with the big picture of regional water supplies, how they become contaminated, how they can be protected and how they can best serve the surrounding populations and industries. Significant focus is placed upon the natural chemistry of available water supplies and its biological impacts. Case studies from regions around the world offer an excellent picture of the world's water resources.
