Prospectus - The Global Issues Project
A project sponsored by: Science for Peace and supported by Canadian Association for the Club of Rome.
Rapidly growing demand, resulting from increasing global population, rising per-capita consumption, and the spread of harmful or inappropriate technologies, is causing an upward trend in the use of resources and the stresses on environmental sinks. At the same time, supplies of resources are being provided at increasing energy cost, and pollution is increasing, most notably the level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. Climate change exacerbates each factor of concern. The Global Issues Project is designed to explain inter-relationships between vital factors, and to devise and promote strategies that might help humankind to manage its way through anticipated crises.
