Abstract

Summary form only given. The authors argue that to determine who is responsible for environmental cleanup, it is necessary to examine our obligations to present and future generations. If we have an obligation to provide an earth which is not polluted beyond use, then we are obligated to correct our mistakes. It is contended that we must clean up existing hazardous waste sites, control air pollution, reduce the use of non-renewable natural resources, insure that further hazardous sites are not created, develop new and different technology to reduce the amount of waste we produce, and change our lifestyles as necessary to accomplish these goals.
