DescriptionEnvironmental quality affects our health, our quality of life, the sustainability of our economies, and the futures of our children. Yet pressures from an increasing population coupled with the need for economic development and an improved standard of living often have multiple effects on our natural resources. So just as a person with a less-than-healthy lifestyle is more prone to infection, a weakened ecosystem is more vulnerable to additional stress. Unfortunately, it is often difficult to see these changes in environmental quality because they occur slowly or at scales we do not normally consider.
