The report emphasizes both status of and trends in environmental quality. It discusses the interrelationships of population, technology, pollution, and other factors that will shape our future environment. Discussed are this year's major developments at the international level and specific substantive issues such as the international trade effects of environmental controls. Coverage of developments at Federal and State levels has been extended to the local level, with a case study of local efforts to control noise. Included is an update of last year's cost figures and a description of impacts of pollution control costs on 14 industries as well as on the overall economy. The report contains a comprehensive analysis of NEPA (National Environmental Policy Act) and a discussion of the National Parks. (Author)
