The Environment, Our Natural Resources, and Modern Technology presents a new perspective on today′s environmental issues. Taking on those who hail the natural lifestyle as the healthy, politically correct path, Dr. DeGregori examines the economics of green consumerism, the reality of saving the environment, how historical cultures may have influenced environmental damage, and why being ecologically correct may have a more damaging effect on our environment.

Not just a regurgitation of theories, The Environment, Our Natural Resources, and Modern Technology offers practical alternatives and realistic strategies to enhance our natural resources and environment in harmony with today′s modern technology. This book will serve as a springboard for environmental discussion for years to come.
