Now or Never. The Fight Against Pollution.
Halacy , D. S., Jr.
Documented in this book are the staggering problems of pollution, the facts and figures about pesticides, waste disposal, air, water, noise, and atomic pollution. In asking the question, "Is there a solution?", Mr. Halacy examines what (if anything) is being done to attack the problems, as well as the many promising technological innovations to solve them. Suggestions are offered on what readers can do to help, stressing the importance of becoming knowledgeable about the specific causes of local problems and bringing them to the attention of other concerned citizens, legislators, and administrators. One especially encouraging example of constructive community effort is described, the amazingly successful clean-up of London's once dangerously polluted air and water. Numerous photographs help elaborate the narrative material, written for ages 10 and up. (BL)
