[Quote No.19063] Need Area: Property > Conservation
"The continued pollution of the earth, if unchecked, will eventually destroy the fitness of this planet as a place for human life. Nuclear war would reduce [combatant nations] to chaotic remnants, incapable of supporting an organized effort for recovery. Worldwide radioactive contamination, epidemics, ecological disasters, and possibly climatic changes would so gravely affect the stability of the biosphere as to threaten human survival everywhere on the earth." - Barry Commoner

[Quote No.19066] Need Area: Property > Conservation
"To look to private business for solutions to pollution may be futile. Its horizons are deliberately limited to those factors, which are considered to be of immediate importance, principally economic, and the hidden costs to the society at large tend to be ignored." - Frank M. Potter, Jr.

"We should understand well that all things are the work of the Great Spirit. We should know that He is within all things: the trees, the grasses, the rivers, the mountains, and all the four-legged animals, and the winged peoples; and even more important, we should understand that He is also above all these things and peoples. When we do understand all this deeply in our hearts, then we will fear, and love, and know the Great Spirit, and then we will be and act and live as He intends." - Black Elk

[Quote No.23523] Need Area: Property > Conservation
"The world's forests need to be seen for what they are.. giant global utilities, providing essential services to humanity on a vast scale. Rainforests store carbon, which is lost to the atmosphere when they burn, increasing global warming. The life they support cleans the atmosphere of pollutants and feeds it with moisture. They help regulate our climate and sustain the lives of some of the poorest people on this Earth." - Prince Charles

[Quote No.23858] Need Area: Property > Conservation
"Man's destiny was to conquer and rule the world, and this is what he's done.. almost. He hasn't quite made it, and it looks as though this may be his undoing. The problem is that man's conquest of the world has itself devastated the world. And in spite of all the mastery we've attained, we don't have enough mastery to stop devastating the world.. or to repair the devastation we've already wrought.[yet!]" - Daniel Quinn

[Quote No.36094] Need Area: Property > Conservation
"[A person, group, company or government]... that concentrates on maximizing output ['the destination'] without paying sufficient attention to the costs of inputs...['the journey'...can ultimately wind up denying his own and others' equal, inalienable rights to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness and personal property]. By 'costs of inputs', of course, I mean what economists call 'opportunity costs', that is, costs as measured in terms of the value of alternative [choices of] uses for the same resources [including time, effort, money, land, etc]. The opportunity costs of industrial production include both the costs of depletion of nonrenewable resources (lost opportunities to use the same resources for some other purpose in the future) and external costs (for example, the lost opportunities to use or enjoy property damaged by pollution)... In a capitalist [free market, free choice respecting and promoting] society, the number one objective of environmental policy [apart from enjoying and sharing it] is to ensure that externalities [that are the costs including opportunity costs] are fully recognized in market prices [or you are taking without there being consenting free market choice and exchange of value as determined by each participant subjectively]. If the price of gasoline at the pump fully reflects the opportunity costs of pollution and resource depletion, drivers, regardless of their personal environmental sensitivities, will be forced to think about [all the pros and cons of that choice, without forgetting to weigh the opportunity costs, so they can truly get in tough with their values and what makes them and others free and happy and so may then happily choose] driving less or buying a more efficient vehicle. The same principle applies to users of industrial energy, whether they be plastics makers, farmers, or power plants. I donít mean to underestimate the difficulty of getting the legislature of a democratic capitalist country to pass laws that protect property rights to the needed degree. But when the price system is used to fight pollution, it seems to work. For example, in the United States of the 1990s and early 2000s, a system of tradable permits was used with great success to bring down sulfur dioxide emissions from coal-burning power plants, with the result that the intensity of acid rain in the eastern part of the country was cut by half." - Ed Dolan
