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; 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, 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. 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 and Atmospheric Administration, National Weather Service, U.S. Global Change Research Program, U.S. Geological Survey. 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, water, air and marine pollution, and renewable energy. It includes a timeline of important environmental events over the last 200 years and has an extensive glossary of environmental terms."--Page 4 of cover
