  • This work inevitably sprang out of our environmental biotechnology modules at the University of Durham, but it is not intended to be just another ‘book of the course’. Though it is clearly rooted in these origins, it reflects our wider, and rather varied, experiences of the field. In many respects, we have been fortunate; teaching has undoubtedly drawn on the ‘theory’, while our own consultancy has tended to focus us on the ‘application’.

  • Nobody likes it when you mention the unconscious, and nowadays, hardly anybody likes it when you mention the environment. You risk sounding boring or j udgmental or hysterical, or a mixture of all these. But there is a deeper reason. Nobody likes it when you mention the unconscious, not because you are pointing out something o bscene that should remain hidden-that is at least partly enjoyable. Nobody likes it because when you mention it, it becomes conscious. In the same way, when you mention the environment, you bring it into the foreground. In other words, it stops being the environment.

  • The most significant issues facing mankind today are related to the quality of our environment. Past decisions did not always consider environmental factors as critical elements. However, current decisions made daily should reflect the importance of the environment. All environment-related issues are multidisciplinary, ranging from science and engineering to social, economic, and regulatory issues. Further, these issues are not related to any one region or country, but are global in nature, requiring multidisciplinary, multiorganizational, and multinational educational efforts....

  • The state of aquatic ecosystems reflects the general state of the biosphere. The situation in the biosphere affected by anthropogenic factors was characterized as “a slow explosion” (Fedorov 1987). The global change in the biosphere and climatic system of the Earth is a manifestation of this “slow explosion” (World Resources 1990–1991, Izrael et al. 1992).

  • The last quarter-century has seen increasing awareness of the interactions between human societies and the natural environment in which they thrive and upon which they depend. This awareness has been heightened by concerns about resource scarcity, environmental degradation, and global environmental issues. The combination of increased awareness of the environment and recognition of the primitive state of much of the nation’s environmental data has led to a widespread desire to supplement U.S. national economic accounts to include natural resources and environmental assets.

  • This report is ostensibly about land quality indicators (LQIs). However, anyone who reads it will find a useful compilation of advice, experience and opinion on why land quality information is important for sustainable development and how it can be used more effectively for planning and decision making. But the report also poses as many questions as it answers, which in itself reflects the diversity of viewpoints on indicators.

  • Desai et al. (2004) provide a meta-analysis of health effects from household solid fuel air pollution. Health effects were categorized by level of evidence from the research literature. Relative risk ratios associated with solid fuel use, relative to clean fuels such as LPG, were derived for each health outcome (table 3.1). 11 The national and global mortality and DALY estimates presented by WHO (2007) reflect the relative risk ratios in Desai et al, limiting the health effects to ALRI in children u5, and COPD and lung cancer in adult women and men. ALRI...

  • The first rudimentary notion of what can be called risk, may have arisen, according to Covello and Munpower (1985), around 3200 BC in the valley between the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers, where lived a group called “Asipu”. A major function of this group was to help people who needed to make difficult decisions. The “Asipus”, when sought, identified the scale of the problem, the alternatives and the consequences of each alternative. Then, they drew up a table, marking the positive and negative points of each alternative to indicate the best decision....

  • Economic reforms implemented since the formation of the GPA have borne positive results for the economy. Real GDP grew by about 6% in 2009 and is estimated to have risen strongly to about 9.0% in 2010, reflecting strong performances in mining (47% growth) due to rising mineral and metal prices and higher agricultural output arising from higher output of tobacco, sugar, maize and cotton. Increases in agricultural output (34% growth) have historically supported manufacturing sector production (Box 1).

  • Use caution when testing. Certain types of testing, including network scanning, vulnerability testing, and penetration testing, can mimic the signs of attack. It is imperative that testing be done in a coordinated manner, with the knowledge and consent of appropriate officials. Ensure that security policy accurately reflects the organization’s needs. The policy must be used as a baseline for comparison with testing results. Without appropriate policy, the usefulness of testing is drastically limited.

  • Hydraulic fracturing, like any deep drilling operation, is subject to the risk of leaks and spills that can cause areas to be contaminated by hazardous waste. In 1980, the Comprehensive Environmental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA) provided for the clean-up of abandoned hazardous waste and established liability to those who released the wastes to pay for clean-up [18]. Yet oil and gas exploration is exempt from clean-up of accidental spills, leaks, and problems from underground injection via the Energy Policy Act of 2005 [19].
