State of the World 1991
STATE OF THE WORLD, WORLDWATCH INSTITUTE 1991
State of the World 1991 lucidly examines the options for restoring our planet's health. From energy production to urban transportation, and from forest management to the reuse of common materials like glass and paper, State of the World 1991 details how we can provide the energy and goods the world needs in a way that is sustainable that does not consume the resource base of future generations.
The authors of State of the World 1991 conclude that partially replacing income taxes with environmental taxes is the key to quickly transforming our environmentally unsustainable global economy into one that is sustainable. Such â€œgreenâ€œ taxes would add charges to the burning of fossil fuels, the use of non-recyclable materials, and the discharge of toxic wastes while generating income for environmentally sound development.
