It's Not Too Late.
Carvell, Fred; Tadlock, Max
This book contains 23 articles related to: 1) the scope of ecological concern; 2) our changing environment; 3) examples of attacks on the problem; 4) establishing priorities; and 5) the value judgments that are posed as a result of our growing ecological awareness. Selections express the divergent experience, professional backgrounds, and attitudes of authors who are professors, scientists, journalists, naturalists, social scientists, and novelists. An attempt was made to include articles that were in the main constructive in describing problems or posing solutions. The articles are organized in five chapters; a focus for viewing overall content is provided in the prologue and epilogue. As introduction, three possible philosophical positions related to environment are described: 1) that the ultimate control of the earth lies outside man; 2) that the destiny of man and the earth is in his hands; and 3) that man cannot and perhaps should not control his entire destiny, and yet by virtue of his rational nature he will always act to control significant portions of his future. The purpose of this book is to offer sufficient evidence that man can alter his values, his behavior, and his institutions in time to change and improve his natural and social environments. Photographs appearing in this volume were among those submitted to a "Psychology Today" contest to best depict problems of the environment. (Author/JSB)
