Abstract

There has been much discussion regarding the needs for even greater engineering and scientific action for environmental management. However, as pointed out in a report of the Subcommittee on Science Research and Development of the Committee on Science and Astronautics, U.S. House of Representatives, “the human race is in fact managing the environment today.” The multitude of subjects discussed at the UN Conference on Environment in Stockholm, Sweden, in the past few days clearly are indicative of the many aspects of environmental management or “mismanagement” (depending upon the particular situations and circumstances) which are involved. Of major concern are, in fact, the mistakes in environmental management which require the use of science, technology and engineering to minimize the impact on society and mankind throughout the world.
