The Environment and the Evangelist.
Garrison, Lon A.
This report emphasizes man's need to understand the balance of nature in order to cease violation of this balance and, in fact, to improve the quality of life and man's place in the universe. Ecologically minded citizens in the United States will find the author's suggestions useful for solving environmental problems: 1) conceive of voluntary population control; 2) set a goal for clean air and water; 3) consider that we are part of the universe and are responsible for our decisions in it; 4) be aware of the existence of laws such as the 1971 Environmental Quality Act and use them to bring offenders to court; 5) become involved, along with planners, engineers, ecologists and politicians, in the planning process; 6) enter into city, state and national politics; 7) demand that longer run research be used for management of the environment; 8) urge the implementation of recycling programs; 9) examine legal standards established for environmental control to see that they are realistic; 10) expect to forego some services.
