Smithsonian Secretary S. Dillon Ripley introduces two articles featured in this month's issue of the Smithsonian magazine which argue different views on the importance of environmental problems vs. the population implosion. Ripley relates his views, in the spirit of his predecessors, urging Americans to look towards their own particular environment. Since the population rate is leveling off, Ripley stresses the need to look at America's urban blight, and he presents this urgent need in a global perspective.
