Transcript 1 \ TRASH ART -Sculptures made with trash were displayed during the Earth Day Celebration at Hermann Park on Sunday, April 22. All across the country, environmentalists came out in droves to enlight people with tips on how to save and protect our planet.P/ioros by Mark Lacy. Some say the air's cleaner Earth Day 1990 had spurred many into believing chemicals were bad, but at least one UH professor disagreed. "It's a naive assumption to believe that the past is better than the present," Thomas R. De Gregori, an economics professor, said. "We have never breathed cleaner air, especially indoors. It's a myth that we don't have clean air." He said that many Earth Day prophets tried to solve issues that were complex with oversimplified analyses and problems. "Saying that chemicals are bad and nature is benign is utter nonsense," he said. "Nature is locusts, droughts and floods. Locusts can eat in one day, 100 tons of food that would feed 500 people in a year," he said. People who say chem icals are bad and nature is good don't weigh all the alternatives and are not discussing the real issues, he said. "I have first-hand knowledge of using and not using pesticides. I've been in Bangladesh and have had to rinse lettuce in bleach before I can eat it." "Dennis Hayes, the spokesperson for Earth Day, Amory Lovins and Paul Erlich were all advocating policies that were a prescription for disaster." "The people who will be most hurt by these policies are the poor. The policies really have an elitist tinge," he said. Organic food is expensive and burning wood emits a highly carcenogen- ic compound and carbon monoxide, he said. -Debbie Housel RE'ssuelAPE 45
