O SER HUMANO E O MEIO AMBIENTE: UMA CRISE SEM SAÍDA? 1 1 Palestra proferida na UFSM em outubro de 1991.


Anton Krapfenbauer Sobre o autor


O presente trabalho apresenta uma revisão bibliográfica e opiniões sobre as intervenções do ser humano no meio ambiente e as suas consequências para a humanidade e o ecossistema. Foram abordados aspectos como o problema energético, o efeito estufa, o conteúdo de CO2, o papel dos oceanos e suas alterações, o ciclo do carbono, bem como princípios para a redução de CO2, de oxidantes e do ozônio. Também foi enfocada a importância das florestas como redutor do CO2 e aspectos gerais pertinentes ao uso adequado do meio ambiente.
