Summary
"Most people are aware that our species is in trouble, and that our Earth, which was once a lush paradise filled with all manner of flora and fauna, is rapidly degenerating. Our resources are becoming scarce, people are overrunning the planet, many of our waterways and lands are poisoned with pollution, and our oil supplies are being used up. Although many people are at work trying to come up with alternate ways of coping with these problems, there is little hope that any great panacea will arrive soon. But the authors of this important book have a solution. We must look to space, to find new mineral resources, new energy sources, take polluting industries away from our fragile Earth, and revitalize our technologies."--Jacket
