Annotation:
This examination of racial differences regarding environmental concerns shows evidence supporting African American concerns about the environment, particularly issues related to human health. The author found that while the races hold comparable views on many environmental issues, whites are typically more concerned about global issues, while African Americans are more concerned about neighborhood environmental problems.
