An appeal by the presidents of universities and directors of public-sector research institutes concerned that the private and commercial patenting of intellectual property rights on agricultural plants is impeding research, particularly that which affects subsistence crops in the developing world. In many cases discoveries and technologies that were originally generated with public funding are no longer accessible as public goods. "Golden rice," for example has more than forty patents associated with it, which constrains further research on rice. These officials are proposing a Public-Sector Intellectual Property Resource for Agriculture to help correct these problems. (v 14, #3)

Attfield, Robin and Katharine Dell, eds., Values, Conflict and the Environment, published by the Ian Ramsey Centre, Oxford, and the Centre for Applied Ethics, Cardiff. 110 pages. 1989. This report of the Environmental Ethics Working Party, Ian Ramsey Center, St. Cross College, Oxford is a timely and stimulating contribution to current discussions about the future of the environment and human interaction with it. In the main report (Part One) a method of comprehensive weighting is introduced, defended, and then applied to public procedures and social practice. In Part Two, there is a criticism of comprehensive weighting and a response. Part Three contains four essays that depict value systems that form the broader sources of values in environmental issues: the Judeo-Christian tradition, and the traditions of secular humanism, Marxism, and environmentalism. First published by Westminster College, Oxford in 1989, and re-issued by Ashgate Publishing Co., in 1996. (v1,#4)

Attfield, Robin, "Sylvan, Fox and Deep Ecology: A View from the Continental Shelf." Environmental Values Vol.2 No.1(1993):21-32. ABSTRACT: Both Richard Sylvan's trenchant critique of Deep Ecology and Warwick Fox's illuminating reinterpretation and defence are presented and appraised. Besides throwing light on the nature and the prospects of the defence of Deep Ecology and of its diverse axiological, epistemological and metaphysical strands, the appraisal discloses the range of normative positions open to those who reject anthropocentrism, of which Deep Ecology is no more than one (and, if Fox's account of its nature is right, may not be one at all). A position intermediate between Deep Ecology and anthropocentrism is advocated, which has been called by Wayne Sumner "middle-depth environmentalism--a kind of continental shelf between the shallow and deep extremes."

Attfield, Robin, "Biocentric Consequentialism, Pluralism and `The Minimax Implication': A Reply to Alan Carter," Utilitas 15 (no. 1, March 2003): Alan Carter's recent review in Mind of my Ethics of the Global Environment combines praise of biocentric consequentialism (as presented there and in Value, Obligation and Meta-Ethics) with criticisms that it could advocate both minimal satisfaction of human needs and the extinction of `inessential species' for the sake of generating extra people. Carter also maintains that as a monistic theory it is predictably inadequate to cover the full range of ethical issues, since only a pluralistic theory has this capacity. In this reply, I explain how the counterintuitive implications of biocentric consequentialism suggested by Carter (for population, needs-satisfaction and biodiversity preservation) are not implications, and argue that since pluralistic theories (in Carter's sense) either generate contradictions or collapse into monistic theories, the superiority of pluralistic theories is far from predictable. Thus Carter's criticisms fail to undermine biocentric consequentialism as a normative theory applicable to the generality of ethical issues."

This paper supplies a critique of the view that a practice which ought not to be followed is ipso facto not sustainable, a view recently defended by Nigel Dower. It is argued that there are ethical criteria independent of the criterion of sustainability. The concept of sustainability is thus retrieved for the distinctive role and the important service in which environmental and social theorist (paradoxically including Dower) have hitherto employed it, not least when debating the nature, merits and demerits of sustainable of development.

A discussion of whether intrinsic value is relevant to the Green Movement politically, replying to Andrew Dobson, "Deep Ecology," Cogito, 3/1 (1989):41-46. Dobson claims, "There may be no doubt that Deep Ecology is indeed the Green Movement's philosophical basis," but Attfield replies that various philosophical positions can support the Green Movement. A theory of intrinsic value in some nonhuman living things, both those with and without subjective experience, is intelligible and important in supplying a philosophical basis for the Green Movement.

Attfield, Robin, The Ethics of Environmental Concern. New York: Columbia University Press, 1983. Pp. xi, 220. Second edition: Athens, GA: University of Georgia Press, 1993. Hardback and paper. First edition: This is a major work of scholarship and argument that attempts, perhaps, to cover too much ground. Attfield has patterned his book after Passmore's Man's Responsibility for Nature (1974), the first important philosophical work in environmental ethics. Like Passmore, Attfield first canvasses the religious and philosophical traditions of Western culture to show that "Stewardship" of nature does not imply "Domination"; thus, no new ethic of environmental concern is needed. This journey into the history of ideas is then followed by an argument designed to show that one old ethical theory, classical utilitarianism, is more than adequate to justify moral treatment of the environment. But Attfield's utilitarianism is nonanthropocentric: the intrinsic value to be maximized is not happiness or rational experience but the satisfaction of interests. Whatever has interests is valuable, and for Attfield, all living individuals have interests.
He thus arrives at a position that is "not as deep as `deep ecology' " and yet deeper than the "shallow" kind of human-interest environmentalism. But the sticking point for any classical or total-view utilitarianism is the weighting of the values to be maximized. Attfield adopts Donald VanDeVeer's "Two Factor Egalitarianism" ["Interspecific Justice," Inquiry 22 (1979):55-79], the balancing of basic, serious, and peripheral interests in beings that lack or have self-consciousness. This view needs a very precise casuistry if it is to be at all successful, but I think it will always lead to a hopeless muddle: we are back with Mill's contrast of the dissatisfied Socrates and the satisfied pig. Is the gourmet's interest in milk-fed veal a basic interest or a peripheral one? Attfield is ultimately unable to overcome an anthropocentric bias, because of his rejection of environmental holism. Chapters on obligations to the future and the existence of possible people also reveal the unintelligibility of utilitarian thinking. Contains an extensive and valuable bibliography.

Attfield, Robin, Value, Obligation, and Meta-Ethics. Amsterdam/Atlanta: Editions Rodopi B.V., 1995. 319 pages. $ 31.00 paper. Part I, on Value, defends a biocentric theory of moral standing and the coherence and objectivity of belief in intrinsic value, despite recent objections. Chapter 3 is "What is Intrinsic Value?"; Chapter 4 begins with "The Intrinsic Value of Flourishing"; Chapter 6 is "Priorities Among Values." Intrinsic value is located in the flourishing of living creatures; specifically, a neo-Aristotelian, species-relative account is developed of wellbeing or flourishing, in terms of the essential capacities of species. There follows a theory of priorities, or of relative intrinsic value, in which the satisfaction of basic needs takes priority over other needs and wants, and the interests of complex and sophisticated creatures over those of others, where they are at stake. Parts two and three continue with theories of rightness and obligation and meta-ethics, defending a naturalist meta-ethic. This analysis continues Attfield's earlier work, A Theory of Value and Obligation (1987). Attfield teaches philosophy at the University of Cardiff, Wales. (v7,#1)

Attfield, Robin, "Saving Nature, Feeding People and Ethics," Environmental Values 7(1998): 291 304. Holmes Rolston's case for holding that it is sometimes right to let people starve in order to save nature is argued to be inconclusive at best; some alternative responses to population growth are also presented. The very concept of development implies that authentic development, being socially and ecologically sustainable, will seldom conflict with saving nature (sections 1 and 2). While Rolston's argument about excessive capture of net primary product is fallacious, his view should be endorsed about the wrongness of `development' in areas where sustainable development is impossible, but not unqualifiedly endorsed about those areas where it is feasible (section 3). Important as policies promoting sustainable levels of population are, representing population growth as a cancer is misguided, and could engender indifference to suffering (sections 4 and 5). The neo-Malthusian paradigm (which makes population growth the cause of both poverty and environmental degradation) appears to conflict with a considerable body of empirical evidence; the kind of policies needed in Third World countries are ones which enlist people's energies for producing food and preserving nature alike (section 6).

Attfield, Robin, "Unprojected Value, Unfathomed Caves and Unspent Nature: Reply to an Editorial," Environmental Values 14(2005): 513 518. This article replies to Alan Holland's challenge to reconcile belief in non anthropogenic intrinsic value with the poetry of John Clare and its projection onto nature of human feelings, and thus with projective humanism. However, in literature and broadcasts, feelings are found projected upon buildings and belongings as well as upon natural creatures. This and the fact that many living creatures (such as the Northamptonshire species not remarked by Clare) never become objects of human projections but still remain valuable suggests that the basis of natural value lies elsewhere, at least in part. Such themes, together with that of nature's independent value, are variously illustrated from poems of Gray, Cowper and Marvell, and from expressions of nature's otherness in the Christian verse of Hopkins (who also helps answer Holland's further question concerning `what we have lost'), and in the pantheistic (or pagan) prose of Grahame's Wind in the Willows. In none of these writers does the value of nature depend on the projection of a humanistic sensitivity, but in different ways on the nature (diversely conceptualised) of natural creatures themselves.

Attfield, Robin. "Postmodernism, Value and Objectivity," Environmental Values 10(2001):145-162. The first half of this paper replies to three postmodernist challenges to belief in objective intrinsic value. One lies in the claim that the language of objective value presupposes a flawed, dualistic distinction between subjects and objects. The second lies in the claim that there are no objective values which do not arise within and/or depend upon particular cultures or valuational frameworks. The third comprises the suggestion that belief in objective values embodies the representational theory of perception. In the second half, a defence is offered of belief in objective intrinsic value. Objectivists hold that axiological properties supply interpersonal reasons for action for any relevant moral agent. The intrinsically valuable is understood as what there is reason to desire, cherish or foster in virtue of the nature of the state or object concerned. The concept of intrinsic value is shown to be instantiated, and defended against a range of criticisms.

Attfield, Robin. "Has the History of Philosophy Ruined the Environment?" Environmental Ethics 13(1991):127 37. I review and appraise Eugene C. Hargrove's account of the adverse impacts of Western philosophy on attitudes to the environment. Although significant qualifications have to be entered, for there are grounds to hold that philosophical traditions which have encouraged taking nature seriously are not always given their due by Hargrove, and that environmental thought can draw upon deeper roots than he allows, his verdict that the history of philosophy has discouraged preservationist attitudes is substantially correct. Environmental philosophy thus has a significant (if not quite an unrivalled) role to play in the reconstruction of many of the traditional branches of philosophy, as well as in the protection of the natural world.

Austin, Richard Cartwright. "Beauty: A Foundation for Environmental Ethics." Environmental Ethics 7(1985):197 208. Human awareness of natural beauty stimulates the formation of environmental ethics. I build from the insights of Jonathan Edwards, the American Puritan theologian. The experience of beauty creates and sustains relationships. Natural beauty is an aspect of that which holds things together, supporting life and individuation. Beauty joins experience to ethics. We experience beauty intuitively: it is an affecting experience which motivates thought and action. The experience of beauty gives us a stake in the existence of the beautiful. Ecology can explore the relationships of natural beauty scientifically: it may be a science of the beauty of the Earth. The beauty of the world is necessary to its survival. Beauty is manifest in the interplay of interdependence with individuality, yielding diversity. The most beautiful relationships are those which recognize diversity, support individuality, and empathetically span the distinctions between beings. The sense of beauty is not a luxury, but a distinctive human vocation. Austin is an environmental theologian with Holston Presbytery, Dungannon, VA. (EE)

This paper offers a critical examination of efforts to use Heidegger's thought to illuminate deep ecology. It argues that deep ecology does not entail a non anthropocentric or ecocentric environmental ethic; rather, it is best understood as offering an ontological critique of the current environmental crisis, from a perspective of deep anthropocentrism.

Journal of Environmental Psychology, vol. 15, no. 3 (September 1995): 183-95. An examination of the evidence for the frequent accusation that technology, capitalism, and Christianity, the three bases of modern Western Society, are root causes of environmental degradation. Although these three are associated with failures to protect the environment, label them as causal factors contradicts known facts.

Axelsen, Kaarin L., "Problems of Punitive Damages for Political Protest and Civil Disobedience," Environmental Law 25 no. 2 1(995):495- . Axelsen examines Huffman & Wright Logging Co. v. Wade, a recent Oregon case in which members of Earth First! were assessed punitive damages for trespassing on private property to protest a logging operation. She concludes that the freedom of expression provisions of the U.S. and Oregon Constitutions make punitive damages inappropriate in cases of political protest and civil disobedience. (v6,#2)

Axline criticizes the salvage logging rider as poor policy and a violation of proper Congressional procedure. Recognizing the dual needs for a sound Northwest economy and healthy national forests, Axline concludes that the salvage logging rider fails to achieve either objective and may instead frustrate both of them.

Ayensu, Edward, et al. (a couple dozen others!), "International Ecosystem Assessment," Science 286(22 October 1999):685-686. Ecosystem management on global scales. The authors argue that an international system of ecosystem modelling and monitoring, integrating the many differing factors--climate change, biodiversity loss, food supply and demand, forest loss, water availability and quality--is urgently needed. The magnitude of human impacts on ecosystems is escalating. One third of global land cover will be transformed in the next hundred years. In twenty years world demand for rice, wheat, and maize will rise by 40%. Demands for water, for wood will double over the next half century. At the turn of the millennium, we need to undertake the first global assessment of the condition and future prospects of global ecosystems. (v10,#4)

Ayres, Robert U., Jeroen C. J. M. van den Bergh, and John M. Gowdy. "Strong versus Weak Sustainability: Economics, Natural Sciences, and "Consilience." Environmental Ethics 23(2001):155 168. The meaning of sustainability is the subject of intense debate among environmental and resource economists. Perhaps no other issue separates more clearly the traditional economic view from the views of most natural scientists. The debate currently focuses on the substitutability between the economy and the environment or between "natural capital" and "manufactured capital" a debate captured in terms of weak versus strong sustainability. In this article, we examine the various interpretations of these concepts. We conclude that natural science and economic perspectives on sustainability are inconsistent. The market based Hartwick Solow "weak sustainability" approach is far removed from both the ecosystem based "Holling sustainability" and the "strong sustainability" approach of Daly and others. Each of these sustainability criteria implies a specific valuation approach, and thus an ethical position, to support monetary indicators of sustainability such as a green or sustainable Gross Domestic Product (GDP). The conflict between "weak sustainability" and "strong sustainability" is more evident in the context of centralized than decentralized decision making. In particular, firms selling "services" instead of material goods and regarding the latter as "capital" leads to decisions more or less consistent with either type of sustainability. Finally, we discuss the implications of global sustainability for such open systems as regions and countries. Open systems have not been dealt with systematically for any of the sustainability criteria. (EE)

Babbitt, Bruce, "Kudzu, Kudzu, Kill! Kill! Kill!" Harper's Magazine (July 1998): 17-18. Secretary of Interior Bruce Babbitt believes fighting "invasive alien species" can bring people together. According to Babbitt, weeds cause environmental havoc on a scale only matched by floods, earthquakes, mud slides, hurricanes, and fire. They infest 100 million acres in the U.S. (an area equivalent in size to a square with 400-mile sides) and are spreading at a rate of 14 percent per year. Weeds "homogenize the diversity of creation," threaten native plants and animals with extinction, erode soil, spread wildfire, ignore borders and property lines, and damage property values. Speaking before the Science in Wildland Weed Management Symposium, Babbitt said, "Weeds slowly, silently, almost invisibly, but steadily, spread all around us until, literally encircled, we can no longer turn our backs. The invasion is now our problem. Our battle. Our enemy. ... The invasion and spread of noxious alien weeds unites us. It unites across political, economic and property boundaries. It brings solidarity among opposing groups. It compels us to share strategic responses. It calls on us to rise above our sometimes petty day-to-day concerns." Babbitt urges everyone to "act now and act as one" in order to "beat this silent enemy." (v9,#2)

Baer, Paul, et al., "Equity and Greenhouse Gas Responsibility," Science 289(2000):2287. Developed countries have agreed to base emissions goals on 1990 levels, and the U.S. insists on "meaningful participation" by the developing countries. But this just grandfathers in existing disproportions. Global carbon emissions average one metric ton per year per person; developed nations emit three to five, the U.S. five. Developing nations emit about .6, though many of them only .2. When the global population reaches ten billion as currently estimated, per capita emissions must be stabilized at .3 per person per year. A more just principle would be to base emissions on a per capita basis. This is simple and it gives each person equal access to and responsibility for the atmosphere. The authors are (mostly) with the Energy and Resources Group, University of California at Berkeley. But, replies Arthur Westing, this proposal just grandfathers in existing population excesses, no better than grandfathering in existing development excesses. A more equitable proposal is to allocate a country's emissions total on the basis of the airspace over that country. See Arthur H. Westing, "Atmospheric Ethics," Science 291(2001):827. (EE v.12,#1)

Despite the fact that feminists have compellingly drawn connections between traditional notions of reason and the oppression of women and nature, many animal ethicists fail to deeply incorporate these insights. After detailing the links between reason and the oppression of women and animals, I argue that the work of philosophers such as Tom Regan and Peter Singer fails to reflect that what feminists have called is not the mere inclusion of emotion, but a recognition of the inherent continuity between the two. To ignore this continuity, I conclude, risks reinscribing the very suffering we seek to eliminate. Bailey is in philosophy, Minnesota State University, Mankato. (Eth&Env)

He also predicted in 1969 that hundreds of millions would soon perish in smog disasters in New York and Los Angeles, that the oceans would die of DDT poisoning by 1979, and that the U. S. life expectancy would drop to 42 years by 1980 due to cancer epidemics. Lester Brown, another MacArthur genius and Worldwatch Institute president, predicted that global oil production would peak in 1990. Carl Sagan predicted that the Kuwaiti oil fires would lead to a global freeze. The global warming issue, "the mother of all environmental scares" is a another eco-scam. All the risks associated with the ozone layer do not amount to moving more than 100 miles south, from Washington, DC to Richmond, Virginia. Only fifteen years ago, Stephen Schneider, now fearing global warming, was then fearing global cooling. Nor does it make any difference what the eco-catastrophe faced is, the problem is always industrial capitalism.

"The destruction of natural environments causes harm to people because it weakens their connections to the natural world. The quantification of nonuse value measures the extent of that harm. Contingent valuation (CV) is the only accessible vehicle thought capable of such quantification" (p. 714). Responses to four principal criticisms of contingent valuation. "To properly assess nonuse value, the law must reconceptualize the human loss associated with natural resource damage as an emotional injury to the person, not a deprivation of a property right. The loss associated with environmental degradation is the loss that humans experience when their subjective connection to the environment is damaged. The legitimacy of compensating for this loss requires recognizing that the injury does not involve the loss of any individual resource's intrinsic value, but is instead people's sense of loss associated with the destruction of ecosystems. When irreplaceable natural communities are destroyed, the human connection to nature has been injured. Contingent valuation, the current means of assessing the psychological injury associated with natural resource loss, is a crucial vehicle for measuring damages because it allows people to assess their own subjective sense of loss" (p. 728).

Bakken, Peter W., The Ecology of Grace: Ultimacy and Environmental Ethics in Aldo Leopold and Joseph Sittler. Ph.D. dissertation, University of Chicago, Divinity School, August 1991. An influential articulation of a secular environmental ethic, Leopold's Sand County Almanac, invests the natural environment with an aura of ultimacy that grounds that ethic and gives it a subtly but genuinely religious character. A contemporary interpretation of the Christian doctrines of creation, Christ, and grace, in the theology of Joseph Sittler, invests the nonhuman world with a similar aura of ultimacy. Leopold's greater attention to "wildness" can critique Sittler's treatment of grace in nature. But Leopold seems unaware of his dependence on religious or quasi-religious factors, and leaves him unable to provide ultimate answers to the place and role of humans in nature. Christian theology can both be corrected by and add deeper dimensions to Leopold's land ethic. The co-advisors were Robin Lovin and J. Ronald Engel.
Bakker, J. I. Hans, "The Gandhian Approach to Swadeshi or Appropriate Technology: A Conceptualization in Terms of Basic Needs and Equity", Journal of Agricultural Ethics 3(1990):50-88. This is an examination of the significance of Gandhi's social philosophy for development. It is argued that, when seen in light of Gandhi's social philosophy, the concepts of appropriate technology and basic needs take on new meaning. Gandhi's social philosophy has been neglected by most development specialists. This analysis attempts to draw out some aspects of M. K. Gandhi's background and his thinking about swadeshi (i.e.local self-reliance and use of local knowledge and abilities) and swaraj (dependent development that leads to equity and justice). Bakker is in sociology and anthropology at the University of Guelph, Ontario.

Baldwin, Dwight, Jr., Judith de Luce, and Carl Pletsch, eds., Beyond Preservation: Restoring and Inventing Landscapes. Minneapolis: University of Minnesota Press, 1993. The theory of preservation is predicated on the assumption that as humans we are different from and opposed to the rest of nature, but the contributors here explore the belief that humans are inextricably entangled with nature and therefore have an unavoidable impact upon the entire ecosystem. The contributors explore the possibilities of restoring damaged landscapes and even of inventing new ones. The editors are landscape architects at the University of Miami, Ohio. (v4,#2)

Ball, Jim. "Evangelicals, Population, and the Ecological Crises," Christian Scholars Review 28(No.2. 1998):226-253. The focus of this article is a review and analysis of the population debate in the Evangelical Protestant literature on ecological crises. Six major writings are considered in depth. The conclusion reached is that the literature thus far has provided an excellent introduction, but the ethical consequences of intrinsic value and overconsumption are undeveloped. (v.11,#2)

Balmford, Andrew et al (eighteen others), "Economic Reasons for Conserving Wild Nature," Science 297(9 August 2002):950-953. "On the eve of the World Summit on Sustainable Development, it is timely to assess progress over the 10 years since its predecessor in Rio de Janeiro. Loss and degradation of remaining natural habitats has continued largely unabated. However, evidence has been accumulating that such systems generate marked economic benefits, which the available data suggest exceed those obtained from continued habitat conversion. We estimate that the overall benefit/cost ratio of an effective global program for the conservation of remaining wild nature is at least 100:1." "Development is clearly essential. However, current development trajectories are self-evidently not delivering human benefits in the way that they should: income disparity world-wide is increasing and most countries are not on track to meet the United Nations' goals for human development and poverty eradication by 2015. ... Retaining as much as possible of what remains of wild nature through a judicious combination of sustainable use, conservation, and, where necessary, compensation for resulting opportunity costs ... makes overwhelming economic as well as moral sense."

Balmford, Andrew et al (two dozen others), "The Convention on Biological Diversity's 2010 Target," Science 307(14 January 2005):212-213. Short-term, and for people in need or with power, destruction of biological diversity has a beneficial effect on personal well-being. But long-term, conserving biodiversity and the services it provides is essential to human self-interest. How can scientists present information about biodiversity in ways that are useful to making longer-term decisions? Part of the answer is establishing better and more reliable indicators that are rigorous, repeatable, widely accepted, and easily understood. In this respect economists have long had a set of common and clear indicators that track markets. Ecologists need something similar.
