|Not only the pretty birds, but also the predators and reptiles, the ugly and unloved, the organic and inorganic – all belong here, with us, on the same small planet.
– Edward Abbey (1927-1989)
|Even 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.
– Milton Friedman (1912-2006)
