Transcript The Environment "The planet is sending us the message that there is a line beyond which we cannot go."New York City Health Commissioner Stephen Joseph. "There is clearly much that remains to be done in the field of international environmental protection. The raising of environmental consciousness throughout the world is a complex political, economic and cultural challenge." — Department of State. (Bulletin, July 1987). Nations cooperated at the Convention for the Protection of the Ozone Layer, water pollution was a presidential campaign issue, the USSR vowed to destroy chem- Ical weapons, a US/USSR effort saved three whales in Alaska, international films focused on environmental topics — "Gorillas in the Mist" (US/gorillas), "Ground Zero" (Australia/nuclear weapons) and "Big Blue" (France/dolphins) . . . the list goes on. Indeed, the eyes of the world are on the environment. Why? The history of human civilization is a story of development. Industrial and technical revolution, the key to wealth S# ; f' and power of nations, is the rapid expansion of production that benefits the economy, usually at the expense of the ecology. Now, the bill is adding up. Tomorrow, the environmental debt will be expensive to society. The world has reached an equilibrium point where the cost of pollution prevention is an investment against the higher cost of pollution results. Earth — Lumbering required replanting and tree farms which increase housing costs, yet defor- resting the planet is a priceless mistake. Toxic waste is expensive to clean up and sometimes causes health problems. This means higher taxes and insurance costs. To decrease health risks and risks to fish and wildlife, restrictions are imposed on pesticides and fertilizers in agriculture. This causes higher costs of production and lower yields which mean higher food prices. Air — Scientists warn that the depletion of the ozone will result in a "greenhouse effect" w 300 ■ Issues
