    It’s very popular and I’ve posted on this site a few times about the book, but I’m a big fan of The Omnivore’s Dilemma by Michael Pollan. It’s ostensibly about the industrial agricultural industry but tells a lot of man’s affect on the environment. It talks about how our food practices lead us to produce the most amount of food in as cheap a manner as possible in the smallest area possible. It’s a troubling problem and one that will be difficult to overcome.

    There are many good books about the human impact on the environment. One good book is Human Impact On the Earth, by William B. Meyer.

    I enjoyed all of Michael Pollan’s books. Also great is Collapse by Jared Diamond, World Without Us by Alan Weisman.

    The Green Book by Elizabeth Rogers and Thomas Kostigen. It tells you how we have lived our lives and how it has effected our environment and then tells us how to better out lives to help the world we live in!
