Afterword by the Honorable Robert K. Dawson
"In the future, solutions to the most far-reaching environmental dilemmas must come from private citizens as well as from industry and the government.... The goal of this book is to articulate the new set of reliable alternatives available to us, and to further the momentum toward excellence already initiated by thousands of specialists, entrepreneurs, and citizens. During our research we have uncovered many examples of environmental excellence. With each new discovery, certain patterns and principles resurfaced again and again. Armed with a knowledge of these principles, each one of us can shatter the myths of our industrial past, and, in the process, offer hope to a world groping for answers."
