Some General Principles

  • Merril Eisenbud


The next several chapters will be devoted to discussions of certain environmental issues that have received major attention in recent years. Many of the subjects have caused intense debate, with marked polarization of views and disagreements as to facts. The subjects are often complex, and involve scientific, legal, psychological, and political factors that are not always easily separated. While it will not be possible to discuss all contemporary issues, the sample will be sufficiently representative to illustrate many of the basic features that apply generally.
