As climate change effects become increasingly important in todays world, Moavenis ENERGY, ENVIRONMENT, AND SUSTAINABILITY helps students understand what each issue means and why it is critical to understand them. Readers learn how environmentally sound decisions involve evaluating energy and environmental footprints as well as the natural resources that are consumed to make products. Students gain an understanding of how much energy it takes to manufacture, produce, transport, use, and dispose of products.

Each chapter begins with clear learning objectives and concludes with a helpful summary. Relevant, everyday examples clarify concepts. Hands-on end-of-chapter problems require students to gather and analyze information as well as prepare brief reports and presentations. Students strengthen written and oral communication skills as well as their abilities to work in teams as many problems require group work and some even require whole-class participation.
