Environmental Protection: Thoughts & Perspective
Here are a few thoughts and comments on environmental protection from different perspectives.
- We need to accept the seemingly obvious fact that a toxic environment can make people sick and that no amount of medical intervention can protect us. The health care community must become a powerful political lobby for environmental policy and legislation. – Andrew Weil
- Environmental policy must strike a balance between the earth’s best interests and our citizen’s pressing needs. – Jim Clyburn
- Environmental pollution is an incurable disease. It can only be prevented. – Barry Commoner
- Economic growth and environmental protection are not at odds. They’re opposite sides of the same coin if you’re looking at longer-term prosperity. – Henry Paulson
