Part of the Environmental Science Research book series (ESRH, volume 39)


Recent surveys have shown that global environmental effects are ranked as a major issue of public concern (109). Numerous newspaper and magazine articles on the greenhouse effect, ozone depletion, acid rain, hazardous waste, and air toxics are some of the recent issues which have helped to raise this level of concern.
