This report covers the next twenty-five years -- 1975 to 2000, essentially from the perspective of possible futures for the United States placed within a world context. By exploring the uncertainty of the near-term future and placing boundaries on it, the authors believe they have provided the environmental policy planner with an important tool for anticipating issues and gauging the utility of policies designed to meet them. The approach to the construction of the alternative futures entailed the projection of certain driving, or key, trends over the next 25 years and estimating the social, economic, and political consequences of a varying combination of their impacts. Certain key policy questions provided by EPA were placed in the context of these futures and conclusions were drawn therefrom.
