Environmental Protection Wentk P

Environmental Protection Wentk P Although Climate Change And Pollution Make Near Daily Appearances In The News, Humans Have Not Always Recognized That The Environment Needs To Be Protected Only After The Publication Of Rachel Carson S Silent Spring In 1962 Did Environmental Protection Became A Political And Social Priority In Environmental Protection What Everyone Needs To Know R , Environmental Lawyer Pamela Hill Offers Clear, Engaging Answers To Some Of The Most Pressing Questions Facing Us Today She Discusses The Science Behind Current Environmental Issues, Defining Key Terms Such As Ecosystems, Pollutants, And Endocrine Disruptors Hill Explains Why Our Environment Needs Protection, Using Examples From History And Current Events, From The Irish Potato Famine To The BP Oil Spill In The Gulf Of Mexico And The Drinking Water Crisis In Flint, Michigan She Also Assesses The Effectiveness Of Landmark Laws And Treaties, Including The Clean Air Act, The Endangered Species Act, And The Kyoto Protocol To What Extent Is It Acceptable To Rank Human Interests Over Ecological Interests And Is It Fair To Ask Developing Countries To Reduce Emissions, Even Though They Bear Little Responsibility For Our Current Environmental Problems Hill Identifies The Greatest Environmental Threats We Are Facing Today And Suggests What We Need To Do As Citizens, Businesspeople, And Lawmakers To Protect The Environment For Each Other And For Future Generations.
