November 2007
Environmental Forum;Nov/Dec2007, Vol. 24 Issue 6, p46
The article introduces a series of articles about dioxin emissions in the U.S. According to the article, individual citizens rather than industries are the leading producers of emissions, and account for approximately forty percent of carbon dioxide emissions. The series of articles addresses issues related to how such emissions can be reduced, the cost-effectiveness of emission reductions, and behavior changes.
