Editions of the Global 2000 Report to the [US] President
The Global 2000 Report to the [US] President is the first so far the only global environmental/developmental study prepared by a national government for its head of state (President Jimmy Carter, in this case). Global 2000 study is based on the integration of a number of sector-specific projections, such as food, energy, population, and environment, most of which were prepared by US Government agencies.
As the study director, I can say that the Global 2000 report was possible only because of the contributions of many people, especially the core study team members: Russell Ambroziak, Samuel Baum, Donald Bogue, John Boland, Patricia L. Cahn, Robert Cahn, Nicholas Carter, Ned Dearborn, Walter Dupree, Peter Freeman, Richard Hennemuth, Fred Howard, Judith Johnson, John Kammerer, Walter Langbein, Jeffrey M. Maclure, Allan Matthew, Alan C. More, Patrick O'Brien, John Pearson, Jennifer Robinson, Bruce Ross-Sheriff, Ken Sherfey, Peter VanderWerf, and Louise Neely.
Political leadership was also important and included Charles Warren (succeeded by Gus Speth), Patsy Mink (succeeded by Thomas Pickering), Story Shem, George Bennsky, Lindsey Grant, Dolores Gregory, Donald King, and Lee Talbot.
Global 2000 sold 1.5 million copies in nine languages and had much influence. The original English and some of the translations are provided below as PDF files.
