America's climate problem : the way forward by Robert C Repetto( Book )

9 editions published between 2010 and 2012 in English and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

What America does - or fails to do - in the next few years to solve the problem of climate change will largely determine the fate of the earth and humanity for centuries to come. Despite the efforts by some states, local governments and individual citizens to respond, controversy still embroils national efforts to come up with a solution. This book by Robert Repetto, a leading environmental economist, lets the reader cut through the confusion and political rhetoric and understand the way to resolve the climate problem. It explains in clear, accessible language how a sensible national policy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions can bring about a transition to clean energy sources while preserving healthy economic growth and high standards of living. It shows where the pitfalls are in developing a climate solution, how they can be avoided, and how to bring resistant interest groups on board. America cannot act alone but other nations will not take action if the United States does not lead, and this book explains how America can successfully promote international cooperation on climate solutions. Never has there been an environmental problem of such importance. Every citizen will benefit from the insight this book provides in solving it successfully

Pesticides and the immune system : the public health risks by Robert C Repetto( Book )

12 editions published in 1996 in English and Spanish and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are substantial grounds for concern about the public health risks from pesticide-induced suppression of the immune system, especially in less developed countries and countries in economic transition. The tonnage of pesticides used in these countries will continue increasing as agricultural production intensifies. Still widely used are chemicals with known acute and chronic toxicity -- including many older products that have been banned, severely restricted, or withdrawn from agricultural uses in the United States and Europe. In Japan, Europe, and the United States, there are also risks to farm workers and others significantly exposed to pesticides, though such groups make up much smaller fractions of total populations and, by and large, exposure levels are lower

Has environmental protection really reduced productivity growth? : we need unbiased measures by Robert C Repetto( Book )

6 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The indicators for economic productivity in the US began to lag in the early 1970s just when major new environmental laws came into effect. It has been argued that this layer of industrial regulation triggered the productivity slowdown. This report counters this argument by showing how the conventional measure of productivity growth misrepresents the industrial process by taking into account only pollution abatement costs and ignoring pollution damages averted by regulations. The authors propose an alternative, unbiased productivity measure and demonstrate how this methodological change recasts the productivity pictures in case studies of the electric power, pulp and paper and agricultural sectors
