Raten und Amplituden Natürlicher und Anthropogener Umweltveränderungen

  • Hans R. Thierstein

Zusammenfassung

Jeder aufmerksame Zeitgenosse hat es festgestellt: Unsere Umwelt verändert sich immer rascher und fast ausschliesslich in einer Richtung, die von den meisten als negativ empfunden wird. Mit grossen politischen, technischen und finanziellen Anstrengungen versuchen wir, die Verschmutzung von Gewässern und Luft, die Verschandelung der Landschaft, das Wachstum von Abfall und andere negative Auswirkungen unserer Lebensweise aufzuhalten. Mit einem entsprechenden Einsatz von Mitteln und dem Treffen zweckmässiger wirtschaftlicher und politischer Massnahmen scheint auch die Hoffnung berechtigt, dass uns dies in der Schweiz in den nächsten Jahrzehnten weitgehend gelingen könnte.
