About this book

The blame for global environment degradation is increasingly being placed on human consumption of environmental resources, particularly in developed countries. This volume examines the potential to analyse such claims scientifically, beginning with the difficult problem of defining `consumption' a term that has different meanings in physics, ecology, economics, and sociology.
