EARTH REPORT 2000, sponsored by the Competitive Enterprise Institute--the best environmental think tank in the country, according to the WALL STREET JOURNAL--sets a new standard for examining humankinds stewardship of this planet. In remarkably clear fashion, EARTH REPORT 2000 explains the key issues regarding our planets fitness to sustain future generations. It debunks many of the myths, statistical and scientific, that have influenced policies of the recent past.

And it offers a persuasive argument for rethinking our approach to the most critical dilemmas of the next century. Environmental concerns both long familiar--global warming and overpopulation--and startlingly new--the toxic menace of endocrine disruptors--are addressed. Throughout, the expert authors, gathered from such distinguished institutions as the University of Chicago, NASA, the World Bank and the Cato Institute, challenge many widely held ideas. In doing so, they make compelling forecasts about a future world quite different from that envisioned by environmentalists, politicians and the news media.
