Time Magazine Archives - dateline 1988
Is is a crime that we've done virtually nothing in the intervening years?
Hot topics then ....
Greenhouse Effect/Climate Change (worsening issue currently)
Ozone Layer depletion (improving issue currently)
Biodiversity destruction (worsening issue currently)
Polluted soil, oceans, rivers, streams, groundwater (worsening currently)
Acidifying oceans (that's where the CO2 is all going; not much mentioned then)
We are batting 1 for 5, and the one we tackled was easily the simplest to change.
