Summary
"How can the Earth become fully industrialized without overwhelming natural systems? This is a book for those who already understand the central importance of this question for the future of civilization and wish to participate more effectively in today's attempts to implement appropriate strategies. The reader will more deeply understand: recycling - after learning what happens to lead and cadmium in consumer products; renewable energy - after exploring a future based on biomass energy; chemicals in agriculture - after being introduced to ecotoxicology and to the global nitrogen cycle; industrial innovation - after reading eye-witness accounts of new design principles and management practices making their way onto the shop floor; and international cooperation - after confronting the conflicting perspectives of authors from several countries." "The goal is to empower the citizen activist, the scholar looking for new challenges, the business leader determined to move beyond slogans in achieving the greening of industry, the designer of policy who knows that the science buttressing environmental policy is becoming ever more subtle, and the educated person everywhere who finds these issues too important to be left to others."--Jacket
