Summary
"In Where We Stand, noted scientist Seymour Garte proves that on the whole, human beings have worked harder to improve our environment than we can ever imagine. Using scientific evidence and a balanced, middle-of-the-road approach, Garte explodes many of the popular myths about human health and the environment. He provides the facts to show that scientific research, environmental activism, and government regulation have produced steady progress in dealing with pollution, poor health, loss of natural resources, and other negative byproducts of our industrial society. With the compassion and aid of dedicated environmentalists, activists, and politicians, we have actually made incredible progress in areas like public health, AIDS research, poverty, and feeding the hungry."--BOOK JACKET
