(p.47) 3 The Global 2000 Report and Its Aftermath
Foundations of Environmental Sustainability

James Gustave Speth

Oxford University Press

This chapter discusses the Global 2000 Report. This report was prepared at the request of President Jimmy Carter in the late 1970s and originally suggested by Lee Talbot, then chief scientist for the CEQ. The report predicted trends that might unfold between 1980 and 2000 in population and the environment if societies were to continue on their current paths. Global 2000 effectively moved global-scale environmental challenges into American politics. Many of its projections proved correct, at least approximately.
