For thirty years I've translated energy, power plant, and environmental bids, contracts, lawsuits, depositions, reports, financials, laws and regulations. One of the most helpful resources is a competently-written handbook competently translated into one of your target languages. The Skeptics' Handbook by Jo Nova is just such a find.
In her own words:
Donors have paid for over 160,000 copies so far in the US, Australia, New Zealand, Sweden and soon in Germany. Over 60,000 copies have been downloaded from this site (and countless others from copies on other sites.) Plus volunteers have translated it into German, French, Norwegian, Finnish, Swedish, Turkish, Portuguese, Danish, Japanese, Balkan, Spanish, Thai, Czech, Lao and Italian. The second Skeptics Handbook is available in French and Turkish. (Versions in Dutch, and possibly Italian are on the way). Updates are placed here, along with translations, as well as places to read comments and links to the web-pages where each part of the handbook will be discussed.
So if you want a Rosetta Stone for environmental science, this is as good as it gets.
