Publisher Description

INTRODUCTION Educational concerns about the environment can be viewed as a logical consequence of the change in the relationship between human beings and the natural world over the last two centuries, to the view that earth and its resources are valuable only insofar as they satisfy human needs. Clark (4) explains that this attitude has had a greater negative influence on Nature than natural events such as earthquakes and volcanoes. This change has resulted in the overexploitation of both renewable and non-renewable natural resources with resulting unwanted waste materials, which have lead to pollution Lowe and Thompson (13), (19). Dunlop and Van Liere (7) argue that this view has been challenged by the new environmental paradigm of the exploitation of nature; and that the growth of the human economy should be balanced with environmental protection, so that people can again live in harmony with nature.
