Natural Resources and the Environment

Abstract and Credits

Land, water, and air policy issues are raised for future policy resolution. Use of biomass, waste management, conservation of resources, and wildlife/recreation potentials are also reviewed. The pertinent question “can we sustain an economically profitable, resource protecting agriculture with our present use of high mechanical/ chemical technology” is raised and tentatively explored.
