Some Advice for Government and Environmentalists
Governments must renew their commitments to international aid. Perhaps new, market-oriented forms of aid are required to avoid past problems of graft and paternalism. But the money must flow, and today a dollar spent for protection of the environment will accomplish ten times as much in the Third World as the First.

Environmentalists must come to terms with the fact that people are more important than plants and animals. Decent conditions must be provided for all of the former before there can be any security for the latter. And institutional environmentalism must acknowledge, first to itself, then to the public, that ecological conditions in the First World simply are not dire any more. The financial resources of the affluent states will not shift to water sanitation in Peru or cooking fires in Kenya until the instant doomsday alarm in the United States and Western Europe has been cancelled. It is in the Third World, not the First, where the environmental emergency now lies. Easterbrook, Gregg.
