Inhaltsangabe: Although the earth has been around for millions of years, man has 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. For most of history mankind was too busy surviving to worry about anything other than putting food on the table, staying warm in the winter, protecting the family and keeping enemies at bay. The industrial revolution changed all that. The by-products of the industrial revolution included coal, steel and cement, mass produced chemicals and fertilizers and, of course, pollution. Most industrial waste as well as sewage was pumped into rivers and lakes while factory chimneys belched out thick black smoke. Now the issue is to determine whether pollution and all the other environmental threats are as serious as some scientists suggest. There are many scientists who say that since the beginning of time the earth has gone through cycles of warming and cooling and that we are just going through another of those cycles. On the other hand, there are scientists who can show evidence of melting ice caps, record high temperatures, freak weather patterns and rising ocean levels. Who is right? Critical Government Documents on the Environment offers the arguments for and against many of the leading environmental issues facing us today. All the material in this book is from published sources, including: *Department of the Interior *Environmental Protection Agency *Department of Health and Human Services *The White House *Natural Resources Defense Council *Audubon Society *Heartland Institute *Heritage Foundation *U.S. National Academies of Science *NASA *National Oceanic & Atmospheric Administration *American Association of Petroleum Geologists *Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change *United Nations Environment Programme *and many more This book does not offer any new science but attempts to present both sides of the argument so that you can make informed choices. 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. About the Series: The Critical Documents Series looks at critical issues of our times. It provides non-partisan information with no spin about critical players, events, and information from and about Washington from as many sources as possible - from scientific journals and government reports to political manifestos and lobby group publications. It presents arguments for and against the issues covered so that you the reader can come to your own conclusions.
