Today, environmental problems are often boiled down to humans versus nature. In July’s issue of Analytical English , you’ll find that it’s not always that simple. Sometimes our actions do inflict damage on animals, such as the civets we mention in “Delicious Coffee at a Cruel Cost.”Yet, at the same time, you can find “A Real-Life Hero” who makes it his mission to protect abused animals. Science is often one of our best tools for protecting the environment. You can read about the benefits of aeroponics in “Growing Plants Out of Thin Air” or the scientists who are hoping to save an endangered bird in “Scientists Sequence Spoonbill Genome.” Yet, the answers we find in science aren’t always the perfect solutions we want them to be, which we show in “The Pros and Cons of Cultured Meat.” Sometimes the tables are turned and nature uses science to protect itself. See the fascinating—though unsuccessful—way onions try to fend off being eaten in “Why Onions Make Us Cry.” Jump into Analytical English to discover more about how we interact with the natural world around us.
