Author: Debra Kimball Strong

The field of recycling is in constant motion. Although recycling has occurred in nature for billions of years (there is approximately the same amount of water on the planet now as there was when the planet was created), we humans have only adopted recycling on a large scale in the last 30 years or so.

In the United States, the practice of recycling became socially accepted―instead of stigmatized―only recently, and in the past few years, it has become downright fashionable, the "politically correct" thing to do.


Recycled Papers: The Essential Guide

Recycled Papers: The Essential Guide Lowest new price: $43.48
Lowest used price: $3.63
List price: $29.95
Author: Claudia Thompson

Paper is the largest single component of municipal solid waste, and the recycling of paper must be part of any resolution to the current garbage crisis. Because there are no uniform standards for the generic term "recycled," it is still difficult for paper users to make environmentally responsible purchasing decisions. Myths, misinformation, and confusion abound. This first comprehensive guide to recycled printing and writing papers will therefore be an invaluable resource for anyone involved with printing, production, design, or issues of recycling in general. The book itself, printed on four different types of recycled paper, is a demonstration of the quality that informed designers and publishers can achieve.

In concise, nontechnical language, Claudia Thompson explains the dimensions of the solid waste problem, the history of papermaking, the elements of recycled paper production (including current definitions and standards), the physical properties and printing characteristics of recycled papers, the potential impact of designers on recycling, and possibilities for the future.

Recycled Papers: The Essential Guide was sponsored by the American Institute of Graphic Arts under the direction of Claudia Thompson, a graphic designer and Principal of Claudia Thompson Design in Cambridge, Massachusetts. Ms. Thompson's work on environmental issues started with the first Earth Day in 1970, and she has been researching the subject of recycled papers since 1988.


Nuclear Reactions: The Politics of Opening a Radioactive Waste Disposal Site

Author: Chuck McCutcheon

The Waste Isolation Pilot Plant (WIPP), located beneath the desolate flatlands near Carlsbad in southeastern New Mexico, is the first facility of its kind in the world--the most elaborate and expensive landfill opened to date that permanently houses mankind's deadliest garbage.

The project is intended to entomb, in a salt formation 2,150 feet underground, four decades' worth of protective gloves, clothing, and other items contaminated with plutonium and other radioactive materials used in building nuclear weapons. The nuclear waste--enough to fill more than sixty-five football fields--is sent to WIPP from U.S. Department of Energy sites in Colorado, Idaho, South Carolina, Washington, and elsewhere. The plant is regarded both as a coda to the Cold War legacy of weapons production and as a prototype for future environmental cleanup projects.

Although WIPP has won widespread scientific and political support, it has been a quagmire of conflicting views about national energy policy. Technical and environmental questions dogged it long before being built, and debates over its use have continued since its opening in 1999. This book marks the first effort to trace WIPP's evolution comprehensively and impartially, from its earliest days as the brainchild of a group of local residents eager to create jobs through two decades of scientific studies, political decisions, environmental protests, and court challenges. It includes interviews with and character sketches of politicians, environmentalists, and scientists and explores the lessons that this hotly divisive project can teach us.

Race And The Incidence Of Environmental Hazards: A Time For Discourse

Race And The Incidence Of Environmental Hazards: A Time For Discourse Lowest used price: $87.56
List price: $39.95
Author: Bunyan Bryant
Brand: Brand: Westview Press

This is a book about the poor and people of color and their struggle to take control of one of the most basic aspects of their lives: the quality of their environment. The authors tell us that we cannot assume that everyone is equally protected from harmful pollutants by laws or regulations. And, while conventional wisdom holds that the supposedly unempowered are also unconcerned about environmental quality issues, these people have found new and less conventional channels, such as the church and neighborhood groups, for advocating for environmental justice. Race and the Incidence of Environmental Hazards is dedicated to exposing the fact of environmental inequity and its consequences in the face of general neglect by policymakers, social scientists, and the public at large.This collection of sixteen articles, the majority of them written by scholars of color, reviews the differential impacts of environmental insults on people of color, such as the consumption of toxic fish from the Detroit River, fallout from hazardous waste incineration in Louisiana, pesticide exposure among farm workers, and the effects of uranium production in Navajo communities. Further, the authors illuminate the failure of traditional, political, economic, and environmental institutions to address these social and life-threatening conditions and advocate new approaches for creating environmental justice.
