dc.description.abstractEnvironmental mishaps are not uncommon. But the negative consequences of them can be great; consider such recent disasters as Chernobyl, the Exxon Valdez, and Hurricane Andrew. In such cases, the story is all over the news. However, the media tend to cover stories while they are fresh and often fail to look back later to analyze the long-term consequences. Long-term studies are crucial, especially when the environmental disaster was not a natural disaster, but rather a man-induced one. If people know the magnitude of the problems their actions may cause—problems that may not fade away with time—there is a much greater probability that they will find ways to proceed differently in the future.en_US
