"The Montreal Protocol on Substances That Deplete the Ozone Layer, adopted in 1987 and revised in 1990, saved life on Earth from possible destruction - the first time that the international community faced such a global threat. Ambassador Richard Benedick, who was the chief U.S. negotiator of this treaty, combines science, politics, economics, and diplomacy in a fascinating and definitive account of the origins and realization of this precedent-setting international agreement." "Ozone Diplomacy provides a dramatic portrayal of the participants in this dynamic process - scientists, industrialists, and government officials - and offers useful models for international approaches to other emerging issues such as global warming. This intriguing story will be invaluable to all those concerned with the environment, international law, and the practice of modern diplomacy."--BOOK JACKET

This report is divided into two parts. The three chapters in part 1 describe environmental conditions and trends. Chapter 1 deals with underlying trends, primarily population growth and economic factors. Chapter 2 covers environmental contaminants, including toxic substances, hazardous waste, air and water pollutants, and overall waste production. Chapter 3 deals primarily with natural resources, examining water, land (including cropland, forestland, rangeland, wildlands, and critical areas), wildlife, energy, and recreation. The five chapters in part 2 analyze several long-range issues that cut across the traditional categories used to describe environmental problems. Chapter 4 reports on several studies that have tried to identify future environmental problems and discusses the factors that are relevant for establishing priorities among these problems. Chapter 5 explains the methodology used in assessing environmental risks, focusing primarily on the analysis of chemicals in the environment. Chapter 6 analyzes the extent to which toxic substances move from air to water to land and the policy implications of such movement. Chapter 7 covers water quality and water quantity problems, the interrelationships between them, and issues related to the management of this vital resource. Chapter 8 explores the relationship between the federal government and the states in implementing environmental policies. (Jn)
