We need some ecology facts for our school's paper.

You should pick up a copy of "50 Simple Things You Can do to Save the Earth" by the Earth Works Group. Published in 1989 by Earth Works Press, Berkeley CA. It is not the ultimate authority on the environment, but it is chock full of snappy little snippets you could pop in your paper like "In 1983, 266 million tons of hazardous waste were generated -- more than a ton for every person in the United States." On the brighter side, the book also tells you what you can do about it. About the best data book on the Environment is the annual "World Resources" report published by the World Resources Institute.
