It has become increasingly clear that human population growth and development activities have combined to place a growing, perhaps excessive burden on environmental resources. Consumption of natural resources, encroachment on land, and emission of pollutants have, together produced strong indicators of environmental stress.

Examples of such stress include depletion of the ozone layer and of many natural resources, massive loss of topsoil and of biological diversity, and potential causes of global climate change including increased atmospheric concentrations of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases [1-3]. Such environmental stressors generally correlate with economic development and growth [2].
