Resources and the Environment book
We are environmentalists. We are concerned with the truly horrible things being done to the air that we breathe, the water that we drink, and the habitats of numerous species. We are very concerned about global warming. We also are concerned about the needless waste of resources associated with modern patterns of consumption. We are abundance economists. We strongly believe that abundance is possible for everyone, no matter where they live. The resources and technology necessary to achieve abundance for all are available now, have been available for a long time, and will be available for centuries to come. Nor is there any inherent conﬂict between achieving abundance and improving the environment. But a lot of nonsense about these issues has been written. In this chapter we hope to challenge your thinking on these issues. Give abundance a chance.
