Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0393313395, Paperback)In this edition of State of the World 1996, Lester R. Brown and the other researchers at Worldwatch identify and describe the rapid acceleration of trends such as the deterioration of freshwater ecosystems, the emergence of new deadly diseases, the loss of topsoil, the competition for freshwater supplies, and the increasing number of pests resistant to pesticides. Yet at the same time, they demonstrate that our knowledge about the Earth is increasing rapidly, and that we are finding ways to deal with the negative trends that threaten our children's future. This is the flagship publication of the Worldwatch Institute, founded to inform policymakers and the general public about the damage being done to our environmental support system.
