Environmental Quality, the Fourth Annual Report of the Council on Environmental Quality.
Council on Environmental Quality, Washington, DC.
The state of the environment and efforts to improve it are reported upon in this Fourth Annual Report of the Council on Environmental Quality. Broad in scope, the report covers federal and state activities during the past year, the urban environment, economics and environmental management, the law and land use regulation, environmental quality, status, and trends, and the citizen's role in environmental improvement. The chapter on international action to protect the environment not only reviews international environmental accomplishments of the past year in a historical perspective, but also deals with specific substantive areas such as protection of the oceans, control of transboundary pollution, and preservation of the world's wildlife and natural areas. The chapter on environmental status and trends provides information on status and trends in environmental quality--whether particular facets of environmental quality are improving or deteriorating and what current conditions are. Four major aspects of the environment are covered: air pollution, water pollution, land use, and population. The final chapter, The Citizen's Role in Environmental Improvement, describes the environmental movement as it is constituted today--the variety of environmental organizations, their interests and activities, their resources and their problems.
