A special edition of the American Chemical Society journal, Environmental Science & Technology (ES&T), is available now for a limited time online without charge. The special edition will be accessible free during 2011, when the world celebrates the International Year of Chemistry.
Entitled 'Environmental Policy: Past, Present, and Future', the special issue of ES&T recognises closure of a 'green' decade in which people became more aware of environmental issues, and society marked the 40th anniversaries of Earth Day, the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency. Topics range from the mysterious disorder decimating honey bee colonies to ways to choose and manage energy sustainably. Those marked "Feature" are written in a less technical style and suitable for general readers, including students and non-scientists.
In addition to scientific research articles and features, the issue will include articles on policy analysis and critical reviews on environmental science and engineering. It will also review the history and directions of environmental policies."
