Abstract

In the last generation, the frequency and magnitude of environmental degradation has been unprecedented. Partly as a result, environmental problems are increasingly global in nature, even as many the effects of “traditional” environmental issues such as air and water pollution, and waste management, persist and worsen. The situation is so dire that many problems have already achieved, or are heading towards irreversible changes with negative consequences for a healthy planet.
