Description - Economic Growth Versus the Environment by Judith A. Cherni

This is critical text of interdisciplinary research and a theoretically argued case for analyzing a physical/social problem with a political economic approach. Judith A. Cherni identifies the convergence of global economic growth trends and the localization of environmental and health risks. Backed by scientific findings, she challenges the exclusive use of the natural sciences for explanation. Drawing also on participatory knowledge of local residents, she uses an original database of a large household survey in Houston, USA.
