Background: (Source: Andrew Somers at about.com)
"The earth provides enough to satisfy every man's needs, but not every man's greed"By the 1960s, air pollution was so severe in major metropolitan cities like Los Angeles that it was presenting a serious health hazard.
In 1970, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) was born, and work began to reduce the problems of air and water pollution.
A 1990 United Nations report states that rising carbon dioxide levels in the atmosphere will lead to global warming, and global climate change. The major source of the carbon dioxide is the burning of fossil fuels, and the deforestation of the Earth's major forests is reducing the planet's capability to process CO2 into oxygen.
