About this book

It is a commonly held assumption that `nature' (however defined) is in decline and that we are on an endless downward slope towards oblivion. Adopting a long-term perspective that focuses on nature's point of view, Easterbrook examines the core environmental issues - air and water pollution, toxic wastes, acid rain emissions, soil loss, radiation exposure, and species protection - and argues that in almost every category far more progress is being made than the commentators are willing to admit. A truly green future is coming.
