Milton Friedman – Environmentalism and the right amount of pollution

Share this quote:
Milton FriedmanEven the most ardent environmentalist doesn’t really want to stop pollution. If he thinks about it, and doesn’t just talk about it, he wants to have the right amount of pollution. We can’treally afford to eliminate it – not without abandoning all the benefits of technology that we not only enjoy but on which we depend.
