Abstract:

Ozone, groundwater contamination, and hazardous waste disposal are only three of the many ecological hurdles to be jumped in the race to save the Earth. This program investigates the major environmental problems facing the United States today and the possible health hazards associated with each. Contributing factors such as rapid resource depletion and an ever-growing population are considered, as well as positive steps that can be taken by communities and individuals to help reduce the impact of these and other exacerbating factors.
