Mounting Pressures on Planet Earth. A Four-Part Bicentennial Symposium Series.
Anderton, David A., Ed.
Detailed are the proceedings of the 1976 Bicentennial Symposium Series held under the general title of Mounting Pressures on Planet Earth. This event, co-sponsored by the Maryland State Department of Education and the NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, brought together researchers and educators to discuss solutions to the Earth's problems. The symposium was broken into four sessions; each session took a detailed look at a very fundamental question about the Earth's future. The questions investigated were: Can the Earth Feed Its People (Forum I); Can the Earth Provide the Energy and Other Resources for the Next Generation (Forum II); Can Science and Technology Solve the Earth's Problems (Forum III); and Can Existing Economic, Political, and Value Systems Cope With the Problems of the Earth (Forum IV)? An afterword by the editor concludes this publication. (BT)
