Environmental Protection: Thoughts & Perspective

Here are a few thoughts and comments on environmental protection from different perspectives.

  1. 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
  2. Environmental policy must strike a balance between the earth’s best interests and our citizen’s pressing needs. – Jim Clyburn
  3. Environmental pollution is an incurable disease. It can only be prevented. – Barry Commoner
  4. 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
