Mass Media and the Environment: Volume One, San Francisco and Monterey Bay Water Resources.
Sachs, David Peter; Rubin, David Mark
In an interdisciplinary project graduate students from several fields--including medicine and communication--conducted an assessment and critique of media performance in the are of environmental problems. The project had no direct faculty supervision--the first such student project funded by the National Science Foundation. This volume presents an extensive background on the various environmental problems in the San Francisco Bay Area. Specific attention is paid to the political history of the California State Water Project, the water resources in the Bay Area, the problem of optimal resource allocation, and the unique quality of the San Francisco Bay. Comprehensive waste water management plans in the San Francisco Bay Area are surveyed and an examination is made of the environmental problems of the Monterey Bay Area. The question of access to information on nuclear power plant siting is also discussed at some length. For a study of the role of the media in these environmental problems see volume two (EM009437).
