Citizens' Guide to Geologic Hazards (1993)

If you have wondered about the actual dangers of asbestos, radon, earthquakes, etc., that are mentioned but not explained very well in the news, then this book is certainly for you. The book was commissioned by the AIPG to give readers knowledge that will save lives and dollars. It explains geologic hazards, the risks these hazards pose, and how professional geologists help to mitigate these risks. The book was written for non-scientists, especially planners, contractors, homeowners, elected officials, insurance underwriters, lenders and financiers, realtors, science teachers, and students. Although geologists have the knowledge that can help reduce the risks, the value of this knowledge will increase greatly when the majority of citizens also understand the hazards and can upgrade public policies that will guarantee that available knowledge is used. Available through the online store.
