In the last few decades the possible detrimental impact mankind is having upon the planet Earth has caused increasing concern. The appearance of an ozone ‘hole’ over Antarctica, the first evidence of industrially induced global wanning, the widespread phenomenon of acid rain and the growing evidence of health problems caused by urban pollution has attracted world-wide attention from both social and political commentators, reflected in the first global treaties attempting to regulate the production of chemicals believed to be detrimental to the Earth’s environment
