About this book

Here is an environmental map of Texas for all concerned citizens and policymakers. Compiled by the Texas Center for Policy Studies, this almanac provides crucial and comprehensive information on the state's land, air, water, energy use, and waste generation gathered from a wide range of state and federal agencies, environmental organisations, and historical and scientific reference sources. The almanac is designed for quick, easy reference by the public, as well as by scientists and government officials and policymakers. Extensively updated since the first edition, it addresses such key issues as the quantity and quality of the state's environmental resources, present rates of consumption, and future levels of demand. This vital baseline information will help all Texans understand the current condition of our state's environmental health and plan for our future environmental well-being. Founded in Austin in 1983, the private, non-profit Texas Center for Policy Studies provides research, technical assistance, and policy development services on a wide variety of environmental issues to a broad array of organisations and individuals acting in the public interest. Mary Sanger and Cyrus Reed are project directors at the Center.

Media reviews
From reviews of the first edition: "Nowhere else have the facts presented here ever been assembled in one place before... This book ought to be placed in every library and newspaper office in the state. Still more, it could find a place in the high schools and universities in [several] courses: history, geography, government, environmental studies." -Texas Observer
