Abstract

The environmental crisis is somber evidence of an insidious fraud hidden in the vaunted productivity and wealth of modern, technoloy-based society. This wealth has gained by rapid short-term exploitation of the environmental system, but it has blindly accumulated a debt to nature (in the form of environmental destruction in the developed countries and of population pressure in developing ones)-a debt so large and so pervasive that in the next generation it may, if unpaid, wipe out most of the wealth it has gained us [9, p. 295].
