Propositions Toward the Survival of a Self-Endangered Species: The Fundamental Question.
Brandwein, Paul F.
The author considers the search for a better, pollution-free environment and the political processes by which various groups attempt to influence or control the actions of others in the context. He defines the goal of conservation as a recognition of the interdependence of man and his environment and lists 13 propositions which indicate the urgent need for immediate action to restore the balance between man and nature. Among the matters which receive brief mention are the natural checks on population growth, the dominance of man, and biological evolution. The contribution of each individual to the problem of pollution is indicated. The role of the conservationist as teacher and minister is stressed, with some suggestions for future activities. (JY)
