One Planet Many People: Atlas of our Changing Environment

"...provides a comprehensive, visual presentation of scientifically variable information, on changes in the global environment—both the good and the bad—acquired and assessed through state-of-the-art remote sensing technology. NB Owing to the weight of the Atlas this publication is subject to an additional shipping charge of 20USD (for delivery in Europe) and 30USD (for delivery to the rest of the world). This amount will be charged once the order has been received at Earthprint and an e-mail will be sent for confirmation."
Order from EarthPrint.
The UN's Environmental Programme (Unep) released this on June 3 in anticipation of World Environmental Day, which has been celebrated/observed (whats to celebrate?) each June 5 since 1972.
Some highlights available in the BBC coverage of the publication.
