Tensions Between Materials and Environmental Quality
Carpenter, Richard A.
Science, 191, 4228, 665-668, Feb 76
Conflicts between economic growth and environmental awareness will change availability and usage of materials. Environmental protection will increase materials costs, restrict land use for manufacturing sites and mineral extraction, and divert capital from expansion. The tradeoff for undesirable effects will be materials conservation and improved health and environmental quality. (MR)
