Summary
  • "Although the earth has been around for millions of years, humans have only been seriously interested in protecting and preserving the environment for less than 200 years and the terms conservationism and environmentalism are little more than 100 years old. The industrial revolution brought with it many benefits such as the production of coal, steel and cement, and mass produced chemicals and fertilizers; it also brought pollution, and shortly thereafter, a serious concern for the environment. This book presents the most up-to-date government information on various environmental topics." -- back cover
  • "Critical Government Documents on the Environment presents official governmental positions on many of the leading environmental issues facing us today. All the material in this book is from published sources, including: Environmental Protection Agency, Department of the Interior, Department of Energy, Department of Agriculture, Department of Health and Human Services, The White House, National Aeronautics and Space Administration, National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration, National Weather Service, US Global Change Research Program, and US Geological Survey." -- back cover
  • "This book does not offer any new science but attempts to present important government information on various issues facing our environment. Areas covered include global warming and greenhouse gases, the Keystone Pipeline and mining, water, air and marine pollution, mining and renewable energy. It includes a timeline of important environmental events over the last 200 years and has an extensive glossary of environmental terms." -- back cover
  • About the Series "The Critical Documents Series looks at critical issues of our times.
