Terms used in the Environment: What are they saying?
Many of us are simply overwhelmed with environmental talk.

Environmental issues are on the rise, and so is the use of many of these acronyms.
Recently, I discovered on EPA’s website an electronic list of environmental terms and acronyms associated with the diverse variety of environmental issues.
This is a very handy link, who knows you may soon talk the talk.
