Genetic Engineering
Genetic engineering has the potential to change the way we live. The science behind the agricultural, medical, and environmental achievements is spectacular, but this excitement is tempered by concern for the unknown effects of tampering with nature.

The Future of Energy
From fossil fuels to biomass, there are several options in our current mix of energy resources. The benefits and downfalls of each fuel must be considered, and issues surrounding consumption, efficiency, infrastructure, and environmental consequences must be resolved in order to determine how we will meet our energy needs in the future.

Working Landscapes
From houses to farms, forests to lakes, strip mines to landfills, we use the land around us in many different ways. But how can we continue to use natural resources without threatening their very existence? We turn them into working landscapes. A working landscape is a natural ecosystem that provides a livelihood for the ecosystem and people. Working landscapes may be a critical step to sustaining many of our delicate environments; however, not everyone agrees on how a healthy working landscape can come to be, or whether it is desirable in every case.

Water Quality
The water we drink, the places we swim, and the plants and animals within our environment are increasingly influenced by one thing—pollution. Agricultural runoff, water treatment processes, lawn maintenance, and other sources significantly impact our communities and the world. The ways we use water, the pollutants found in it, and the issues that challenge its quality must be understood if we are to protect this vital resource.
