One Planet, Many People - Excellent Teaching Tool

A link to this website was emailed to me - thanks. This appears to be an excellent resource for anyone teaching or studying Environmental courses (economic or otherwise).

The site includes images, powerpoint slides, interactive maps, a news section and much more.

Check this out. I have also added it to the sidebar.

One Planet, Many People: Atlas of Our Changing Environment provides a comprehensive, visual presentation of scientifically verifiable information about changes in the global environment, shown through state-of-the-art remote sensing technology. A collection of 405 Powerpoint slides divided into Regional and Thematic sets covering 11 contemporary and dynamic themes - Introduction to the Planet, People and Planet, Atmosphere, Coastal Areas, Urban Areas, Water and Lakes, Forests, Cropland, Grassland, Tundra and Polar Areas and Extreme Events - and 6 geographical regions - Africa, Asia and the Pacific, Europe, Latin America, North America and Polar Regions - can now be downloaded free of charge.
