Book Summary:

The excessive growth of human population, increasing from about 1 billion in the year 1800 ti about 6.7 billion at the start of the year 2008, has resulted in enormous urbanisation and expansion of agricultural, industrial and commercial activities on our fragile planet-earth. The large scale use of fossil fuels (coal, oil and gas) in industries as well as in automobiles have accelarated and resulted in wide spread pollution of our environment, at local, regional, as well as global levels.

Many of the universities and colleges, including the engineering colleges, have introduced this subject in the first or second year of their undergraduate courses.
