This Natural Inquirer edition discusses the condition of United States' natural resources in the year 2000, as well as how these conditions may change by the year 2040. In the year 2040, how old will you be? Do you think that the condition of the Nation's renewable natural resources will be important to our society in 2040? Why or why not? The articles in this journal will help you to think about the future of global climate change, the Nation's wildlife, our freshwater, our fish, the trees that grow in our cities and towns, and the conditions that tell us whether our forests and rangelands are healthy. As you read the articles, remember that it is hard to predict the future. Although scientists do the best job they can, many things can change in the future.
