Overview

Mounting evidence points to the dangers of climate change, the depletion of clean fresh water and rich topsoil, the transformation of vast tracts of forest into wastelands, and the eradication of countless thousands of species of animals and plants. These and other adverse processes are occurring throughout the world, at an ever accelerating pace.

Solutions for an Environment in Peril collects the wisdom of some of the most influential men and women who are working both to reverse this global trend and to encourage others to help. In original essays—based on seminars they gave at the Environmental Protection Agency—these environmental leaders and thinkers assess the most important environmental problems and propose solutions for the future.
