ABSTRACT

Local and global environmental problems are increasingly
demanding our attention, as threats to our quality of life
and even our physical survival become more apparent.
The environmental agenda has largely been driven by
understandable concern for the increasing pressure
placed on the natural world by human behaviour. In the
forty years since the publication of Rachel Carson's
Silent Spring first drew attention to the consequences
of human activity on natural systems, the scale of the
problem has grown inexorably. The human population
has more than doubled, economic activity has quadrupled
and carbon dioxide emissions have increased tenfold.
