Report to the President and to the Council on Environmental Quality.
Citizens Advisory Committee on Environmental Quality.
This report discusses three current environmental concerns. First, the report addresses the energy crisis and recommends the establishment of a balance between increased domestic energy supplies and reduced domestic energy demands, the recycling of solid wastes to save energy and materials, and the need to view short-term and long-term energy development in terms of net energy gained. Second, the report presents the problem of loss of agricultural land to urban development. The committee recommends federal and state land use plans to combat possible agricultural production losses. Third, the report discusses the need for change in Americans' living patterns to relieve pressure on natural resources and the roral environment. (MR)
