Barbanell, Edward Morris, Private Property and Common-property Arrangements: The Case of Water in the West, Pd.D. thesis, Department of Philosophy, University of Utah, 1999. Private ownership is not the preferred end state for all scarce resources, illustrated by water in the American West. Because of water's "factor endowments", e.g., its degrees of jointness, divisibility and excludability, one individual's use creates significant negative externalities for other users. Individuals' interests can be better protected by splitting the various rights of ownership between individual resource users and the "resource community" to which they belong. This dissertation offers an expanded framework of "ownership", or rights-relationships. Locke's account of property is inadequate for water and other resources with similar factor endowments. Economists often conflate "open access" with "common ownership." The former describes a state of affairs where there are no rights-relationships at all, whereas the latter denotes a situation where definite property rights have been established. When the rights-relationship among members of a resource community is based on shared expectations of reciprocal behavior, then a common-property arrangement can function effectively to control the overuse of scarce resources. The advisor was Bruce Landesman. (v.13,#4)
Barbato, Joseph and Lisa Weinerman, eds., Heart of the Land: Essays on the Last Great Places. New York: Pantheon Books, 1994. 297 pages. A Nature Conservancy sponsored book. Thirty essays by well-known nature writers about places that still retain the ability to inspire, to awe, and to fire our collective imaginations. The essayists find that such places move us in ways that we intuitively understand but cannot adequately explain. Samples: Terry Tempest Williams, "Winter Solstice at the Moab Slough (Colorado Plateau, Utah)"; Rick Bass, "On Willow Creek" (Texas Hill Country); Joel Achenbach, "The Most Patient of Animals" (Clinch Valley, Virginia). "Of course we shouldn't protect a wild core such as the Texas hill country because it is a system still intact with the logic and sanity that these days too often eludes our lives in the city. We should instead protect the hill country simply for its own sake, to show that we are still capable of understanding (and practicing) the concept of honor: loving a thing the way it is, and trying, for once, not to change it" (Rick Bass). Barbato is an editorial director at the Nature Conservancy; Weinerman is with Nature Conservancy in Latin America. (v7,#1)

Barbier, Edward B., "The Concept of Sustainable Economic Development," Environmental Conservation 14(no. 2, Summer, 1987):101-110. Sustainable development is perhaps a difficult concept to define with analytical rigor but it is nevertheless a useful concept. One makes an effort to mazimize simultaneously goals in three areas (1) Biological system goals, such as genetic diversity, resilience, biological productivity; (2) Economic system goals, such as satisfying basic needs, reducing poverty, equity-enhancing, increasing useful goods and services; and (3) Social system goals, such as cultural diversity, institutional sustainablility, social justice, and participation. This forces tradeoffs, since all these goals cannot at once be maximized, and optimum solutions can be sought. Barbier is with the International Institute for Environmental and Development, London.

The term "animal rights" is inappropriate for animals. It is best abandoned for these more satisfactory and Biblically-based concepts. There is a positive mandate given to humans to care for the whole natural world. Barclay is a zoologist. (v4,#3)

Barlow, Chuck D., "Why the Christian Right Must Protect the Environment: Theocentricity in the Political Workplace," The Boston College Environmental Affairs Law Review 23 (no. 4, Summer, 1996):781- . Originally a LL.M. (Master of Laws) thesis, in the environmental law and natural resources program at the Northwestern School of Law of Lewis & Clark College, Portland, Oregon, December 1995. The faculty advisor was Professor William Funk. Analyzes the rise of the Christian right as a force in American political policy, demanding adherence to traditional Biblical values. The Christian right has taken, at best, an indifferent, and at worst, a heavily anthropocentric attitude toward the use and conservation of the environment. Barlow rebuts the proposition, asserted by Lynn White, Jr., Aldo Leopold, and others, and implicitly accepted by the environmental inaction of the Christian right, that the scriptures of the Judeo-Christian tradition promote an anthropocentric environmental ethic. Rather, the Bible sets forth a "theocentric," or God-centered, approach to care of the environment. Those who claim to base their political agenda on Christianity ought to consider the Biblical mandate to use the earth's resources wisely. Address: Chuck D. Barlow, c/o Phelps Dunbar, L.L.P., P.O.

Barr, James. Biblical Faith and Natural Theology. Oxford: Clarendon Press, 1993. 244 pages. Writing against the background of the rejection of natural theology by prominent twentieth century theologians (especially Karl Barth), Barr, well-known for his biblical exegesis, argues that natural theology is a legitimate enterprise within biblical thought. Any religious claim, no matter how strongly defended as revealed, includes some element of "anterior knowledge" that arises out of what has traditionally been viewed as natural theology. Natural theology is an essential and lively component of Biblical faith. Unfortunately, Barr chooses not to bring his new regard for natural theology to bear in any substantial way on the new discussions of the world and nature prompted by the ecological crisis. Barr presented these as Gifford lectures in 1991; an earlier Gifford lecturer denying natural theology was Karl Barth in 1938. (v6,#3)

Barrett, Christopher B., and Ray Grizzle. "A Holistic Approach to Sustainability Based on Pluralism Stewardship." Environmental Ethics 21(1999):23 42. In this paper, we advance a holistic ecological approach based on a three compartment model. This approach favors policy initiatives that lie at the intersection of the three major areas of concern common to most environmental controversies: environmental protection, provision of basic human needs, and advancing economic welfare. In support of this approach, we propose a "pluralistic stewardship" integrating core elements of anthropocentrism, biocentrism, and ecocentrism. After presenting the basics of our model, we then explain why it is important to identify and promote a holistic ecological approach to sustainability. Here we employ the economic concept of path dependence, emphasizing that there exist multiple paths society can follow in environmental ethics and policy but once one has been chosen, implicitly or explicitly, there may be little opportunity to reverse such choices.

Barringer, Felicity, "Forest Service Seeks Limits on All-Terrain Vehicles," New York Times, July 8, 2004, p. A12. The U.S. Forest Service is proposing that ATV's must stay on established trails, rather than drive anywhere they please, creating "outlaw" trails. Such non-trails now cover five times as many miles as the proper trails. ATV riders particularly like the challenge of steep slopes and this creates much erosion. ATV use has increased sevenfold in the past thirty years. Some of the 155 National Forests already require staying on trails, but many do not. ATV use has increased sevenfold in the past thirty years. One rider, asked about the appeal of riding in the mud, said, "I like getting muddy. If you haven't gotten muddy, you haven't ridden."

During the 1990's the number of hogs grew from three to over nine million. Systems to deal with the waste, using lagoons and spraying treated wastes onto fields--the wastes do contain phosphorus and nitrogen, the main ingredients in fertilizer--has repeatedly failed. The EPA has done little and the State of North Carolina has mandated a study to which industry has contributed $ 18 million. That study, two years overdue, is about to be released, lead by C. M. Williams of North Carolina State University. The better the solutions are, the more expensive they are. (v. 15, # 3)

Barringer, Felicity, "New Provision Would Allow Slaughtering of Wild Horses," New York Times, November 25, 2004, p. A20. A provision attached to an Omnibus Spending Bill by Senator Conrad Burns, Republican, Montana, would allow the sale for slaughter of feral horses that have been rounded up and are more than ten years old or have been offered for adoption successfully three times. The bill is awaiting final action. There are about 37,000 feral horses and burros running free in ten U.S. Western states; most are in Nevada. The Bureau of Land Management rounds up some when numbers increase and now has about 30,000 horses in holding areas. The feral horses compete with livestock and elk for grass. In some areas of Nevada wild animals, including horses, had conssumed two-thirds of the available forage before cattle were let onto the land at the end of winter. This time it is the cattlemen, not the ecologists, who want the horses thinned off the landscape. B.L.M. prefers adoption; over 203,000 horses and burros have been adopted in three decades; about 6,600 were adopted last year. But there are many more horses than persons willing to adopt them.

Practice of conservation biology that does not actively and continuously question the values that shape it is self-defeating. Conservation biology is inescapably normative. Advocacy for the preservation of biodiversity is part of the scientific practice of conservation biology. Conservation biologists should reflect on the constitutive values underlying their research programs and policy recommendations. Such reflection is itself an inherent element of scientific objectivity and takes into account the social nature of scientific knowledge. Without openly acknowledging such a perspective, conservation biology could become merely a subdiscipline of biology, intellectually and functionally sterile and incapable of averting an anthropogenic mass extinction.

The principal legal impetus for AWARETM is the Electric Consumer Protection Act (ECPA) of 1986 that directs FERC to give equal consideration to power and non-power resources during relicensing. The software is reviewed in this paper from several perspectives including those of natural resource economics, systems modeling, and the social context within which FERC licensing decisions are made. We examine both the software and its underlying methodology and find significant problems with each. Because of its flaws, AWARETM does little to further ECPA's equal consideration requirement. We find that the conservation and restoration impact of ECPA for US fisheries could be seriously hampered by the widespread use of AWARETM.

Bartkowski, John P., and Swearingen, W. Scott, "God Meets Gaia in Austin, Texas: A Case Study in Environmentalism as Implicit Religion," Review of Religious Research 38(1997):308-324. Drawing on insights from Mircea Eliade's theory of sacred space, the authors call attention to a series of striking similarities between classical modes of religious experience on the one hand and the sacralization of a prized natural resource located in Austin, Texas, on the other. Using interview data, they argue that Austin's Barton Springs is construed in terms that provide (1) nodal space to individuals giving access to ultimate reality, (2) integrative space which binds them to the local Austin community, and (3) democratic space that furnishes Austin with a distinctive character in opposition to surrounding locales. The authors are at the University of Texas, Austin.

The changes that might result from global warming are difficult to predict but models indicate they will be as great or greater than those seen in the paleoecologic record during previous warming intervals, and will likely exceed the capacities of present species to adjust to them, resulting in communities without any analogue in present-day vegetation.

Bartlett, Robert V. "Ecological Rationality: Reason and Environmental Policy." Environmental Ethics 8(1986):221 39. Ecological rationality is a concept important to most environmental and natural resources policy and to much policy-relevant literature and research. Yet ecological rationality as a distinctive form of reason can only be understood and appreciated in the context of a larger body of work on the general concept of rationality. In particular, Herbert Simon's differentiation between substantive and procedural rationality and Paul Diesing's specification of forms of practical reason are useful tools in mapping and defining ecological rationality. The significance and characteristics of ecological rationality suggest that it is a fundamental kind of reason, having precedence over others.

Barton, Harry, "The Isle of Harris Superquarry: Concepts of the Environment and Sustainability," Environmental Values 5(1996):97-122. In 1991 Redland Aggregates Ltd. put forward a proposal to embark upon the largest mining project in Europe, the chosen location being the remote island of Harris and Lewis in the Western Isles of Scotland. The proposal sparked off an impassioned debate between planners, conservationists and developers, while the local residents have attempted to come to terms with an operation on a scale previously inconceivable on the island. This paper attempts to examine the proposed development from a sociological angle. It is less concerned with justifying or condemning the project on economic or political grounds and more with analyzing the roots of the various viewpoints held by those involved, willingly or unwillingly, in the debate. From this analysis arise implications regarding different perspectives on the environment and different interpretations of the term sustainable. It is argued that these diverse perceptions are grounded in different interpretations of the environment, shaped by the cultural and historical context within which the groups or individuals that hold these views exist and interact. Ultimately, the paper makes a plea for a wider recognition of the diversity of meanings and interpretations implied by the term environment, a broader definition of the term development, and an expansion of the concept of sustainability to incorporate the variety of situations and perceived needs of different cultures.

Bates, Jennifer. "An Inquiry into the Nature of Environmentally Sound Thinking." Environmental Ethics 25(2003):183 197. Many philosophers advocate a change in our thinking in order to move beyond an anthropocentric view of the environment. In order to achieve the kind of thinking that makes for sound environmental thinking, we have to look more deeply into the nature of thought and to revise the relation between thought directed outward to the world and thought directed inwardly to thought itself. Only with such insight can we begin to think soundly about the environment. Thought exhibits a characteristic that makes it hard to think environmentally soundly. This characteristic is the inability to think of something without at the same time making it one's property. In other words, if sound environmental thinking means moving beyond anthropocentric attitudes and, for example, extending moral categories to creatures other than humans, then we need to address how our thinking turns everything into "mine" before we go about establishing a theory about how that extension should take shape. Hegel is the philosopher who most deeply analyses the inevitable, yet dangerous role of "mining"Cin the sense of "making mine," in the act of thinking. This potentially problematic character of thought risks making a number of otherwise sound environmental ways of thinking, unsound. However, we can provide a balance for this problematic characteristic in our thinking. (EE)

Bauckham, Richard, "Joining Creation's Praise of God," Ecotheology 7 (No 1 July 2002):45-59. In the Bible and the Christian tradition an important aspect of the way the relationship of God, humanity and other creatures is understood is the idea that all creatures praise God and humans are to join in the praise offered by the other creatures. This theme has been misunderstood and neglected in the modern period. We should avoid distorting it in an hierarchical and anthropocentric direction, as happens in the idea that humans are the priests of creation. Instead this theme should act as a strong corrective to hierarchical and anthropocentric views of creation, It puts us among, rather than over the creatures, and encourages us to be helped in our own praise of God by appreciating the value other creatures have for God. Francis of Assisi and the eighteenth-century poet Christopher Smart are fine exemplars of the way humans may join creation's praise.

Baxter, Brian H., "Ecocentrism and Persons," Environmental Values 5(1996):205-219. Ecocentrism has to establish an intrinsic connection between its basic value postulate of the non-instrumental value of the nonhuman world and a conception of human flourishing, on pain of failure to motivate acceptance of its social and political prescriptions. This paper explores some ideas recently canvassed by ecocentrists such as Robyn Eckersley, designed to establish this connection--transpersonal ecology, autopoietic value theory and ecofeminism--and finds them open to objection. An alternative approach is developed which concentrates on the connection between non-human nature and personhood, via the phenomenon of culture. Persons are conceived of as essentially culture-creators, and the fact of their embodiment in ecosystems is argued to be essential to their activities as culture creators. The variety and integrity of such systems thus turns out to be essential for the flourishing of what is essential to personhood. This means that ecocentrism has to be abandoned in its pure form, and replaced with person-centrism, but this conclusion is argued for on the basis of the extension of the concept of the self--a strategy often endorsed by ecocentrists themselves.

Baxter, Brian. "Environmental Ethics Values or Obligations? A Reply to O'Neill." Environmental Values 8(1999):107-112. ABSTRACT: Onora O'Neill recently argued that environmental ethics could and should be reformulated in terms of a search for the obligations held by moral agents towards each other, with respect to the non human world. The more popular alternative, which seeks to establish the intrinsic value of the non human, is plagued with various theoretical difficulties attaching to the concept of value. It is here argued that O'Neill's attempt to determine fundamental obligations of moral agents on the basis of a non universalisability criterion does not succeed. It is further claimed that such an approach, in spite of the advantages which O'Neill sees it as having, is itself open to serious objection from the viewpoint of environmental ethics, especially as human beings are able in principle to release each other from mutual obligations. It is concluded that, in spite of the difficulties involved, postulations of (intrinsic) value to non human nature do seem to be indispensable to environmental ethics.

Beauchamp, E. G., "Animals and Soil Sustainability", Journal of Agricultural Ethics 3(1990):89ff. Domestic livestock animals and soils must be considered together as part of an agroecosystem which includes plants. Soil sustainability may be simply defined as the maintenance of soil productivity for future generations. There are both positive and negative aspects concerning the role of animals in soil sustainability. The key component for a fully compatible and acceptable association between domestic animals and soil productivity is proper management. Careful management of the components of an animal-based agroecosystem is required if soil productivity and environmental quality are to be maintained. Beauchamp is in land resource science at the University of Guelph, Ontario.

"The years surrounding 1970 marked the coming of age of the modern environmental movement. As that movement approaches its fourth decade, perhaps the most striking change is the virtual abandonment by national environmental groups of U.S. population stabilization as an actively-pursued goal. To begin to understand why that shift has occurred and the significance of that shift, it will be important to review the 1970-era movement and its population roots."

Becker, Christian and Reiner Manstetten, "Nature as a You: Novalis' Philosophical Thought and the Modern Ecological Crisis," Environmental Values 13(2004):101 118. This paper aims to introduce the German Romantic poet Novalis into the discussion of the modern ecological crisis. In particular we examine Novalis' unique philosophy of nature as a You in which he deals with both of the two aspects of the relationship between humans and nature: their original identity as well as the distinction between them. We analyse the way in which Novalis understood the relationship between nature and humankind dynamically, and show the significance of his concept of poetry for this question. This concept is analysed and described in respect to its principal features: creativity and love. The former is regarded by Novalis as a general capacity of humans as well as an expression of nature itself. Together with love it forms the base for a possible harmonious relationship between humans and nature. We furthermore interpret Novalis' economic thought against the general background of his philosophy of nature and his understanding of humankind. Novalis recognises the crucial role economic action plays in the relationship between nature and humankind and he offers some important insights into this issue. Finally, we discuss the relevance of Novalis' concept of nature as a You for environmental philosophy. By comparison with other concepts of nature in the modern environmental debate, we show how Novalis' thought offers a new perspective on the human nature relationship and thus fruitful stimulation for today's environmental philosophy.Becker is in the Interdisciplinary Institute for Environmental Economics, University of Heidelberg.

Beckerman, Wilfred, "`Sustainable Development': Is it a Useful Concept?" Environmental Values 3(1994):191-209. It is argued that `sustainable development' has been defined in such a way as to be either morally repugnant or logically redundant. `String sustainability, overriding all other considerations, is morally unacceptable as well as totally impractical and `weak' sustainability, in which compensation is made for resources consumed, offers nothing beyond traditional economic welfare maximization. Apart from a few small developing countries heavily dependent on minerals or other finite primary products, the measurement of some wider concept of `sustainable' GNP is a waste of time and such estimates as have been made are virtually worthless.

Beckerman, Wilfred, Pasek, Joanna, "Plural Values and Environmental Valuation," Environmental Values 6(1997):65-86. ABSTRACT: The paper discusses some of the criticisms of contingent valuation (CV) and allied techniques for estimating the intensity of peoples preferences for the environment. The weakness of orthodox utilitarian assumptions in economics concerning the commensurability of all items entering into peoples choices is discussed. The concept of commensurability is explored as is the problem of rational choice between incommensurate alternatives. While the frequent claim that the environment has some unique moral intrinsic value is unsustainable, its preservation often raises ethical and other motivations that are not commensurate with the values that people place on ordinary marketable goods. Nevertheless, CV is also claimed to have some advantages and it is concluded that little progress will be made in this area until both sides in the debate recognise what is valid in their opponents arguments.

Beckerman, Wilfred. "How Would You Like Your `Sustainability', Sir? Weak or Strong? A Reply to my Critics." Environmental Values 4(1995):169-179. This article concentrates on the Jacobs and Daly criticisms (Environmental Values, Spring 1994) of my earlier article in the same journal (Autumn 1994) criticising the concept of `sustainable development.' Daly and Jacobs agreed with my criticisms of `weak' sustainability, but defended `strong' sustainability on the grounds that natural and manmade capital were `complements' in the productive process and that economists are wrong, therefore, in assuming that they are infinitely substitutable. This article maintains that they are confusing different concepts of `complementarity' and `substitutability.' It is also argued that, in fact, they do both sell crucial passes in their defence of strong sustainability without providing any clear criteria for their abandonment of it in certain cases. It is also denied that the fact that environmental services may provide different satisfactions from those obtained from other goods and services elevates it to the status of some over-riding moral value, or that discounting future costs and benefits is `unfair' to future generations. KEYWORDS: discounting, economic welfare, environmental values, inter-generational justice, natural capital, scarce resources, sustainability. Beckerman is at Balliol College, Oxford. (EV)
Beckert, Cristina, ed., Natureza e Ambiente: Representaçoes na Cultura Portuguesa (Nature and Environment: Representations in Portuguese Culture). Lisboa: Centro de Filosofia da Universidade de Lisboa, 2001. Introduction by Viriato Soromenho-Marques. Papers from a symposium held in 1998 at the University of Lisbon. The papers in this anthology show different features of nature and environment in Portuguese culture and were put together in three main groups. The first group regards the way popular Portuguese tradition and contemporary literature conceive the relation between man and nature and how some Portuguese writers and poets predict the environmental crisis we are living now. The second group consists of political and sociological analysis concerning the history of the Portuguese environmental associations and the image of environmental issues released by the media. Finally, the third group concerns nature and environment as philosophical categories and includes papers about the relation between nature and technique, the notion of a "natural community" inherited from Aldo Leopold, along with studies on Kant's aesthetic concept of nature and Portuguese philosophical views on this category. Beckert and Soromenho-Marques are in philosophy at the University of Lisbon. (v.12,#4)

Large corporations are using sophisticated techniques to change the way the public and politicians think about the environment and to weaken gains made by environmentalists, turning politicians against increased environmental regulation. Among their techniques: employing PR firms to set up front groups that promote the corporate agenda while posing as public interest groups; creating "astroturf"--artificially created grassroots support groups for corporate causes; strategic lawsuits against public participation (SLAPPS); getting corporate-based environmental educational materials into public schools; and funding conservative think tanks.

Beekman, Volkert, "Sustainable Development and Future Generations," Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics 17(2004):3-22. This paper argues, mainly on the basis of Rawls's savings principle, Wissenburg's restraint principle, Passmore's chains of love, and De Shalit's trans-generational communities, for a double interpretation of sustainable development as a principle of intergenerational justice and a future oriented green ideal. This double interpretation (1) embraces the restraint principle and the argument that no individual can claim an unconditional right to destroy environmental goods as a baseline that could justify directive strategies for government intervention in non sustainable lifestyles, and (2) suggests that people's concerns about the deterioration of nature and the environment articulate future oriented narratives of self identity that could fuel non directive strategies to develop further responsibilities towards nearby future generations. Sustainable development, thus, provides sound arguments to restrict people's freedom to follow their own lifestyles, when these lifestyles transgressed the baseline of the restraint principle. However, the individual freedom of choice should not be restricted for any further environmental considerations. Non directive strategies are thus to stimulate the development of such further responsibilities towards nearby future generations.

It criticizes attempts at quantifying some environmental utilization space and argues that the uncertainty of scientific knowledge about the unintended environmental repercussions of consumptive choices casts serious doubt about attempts to justify government intervention in non sustainable lifestyles. Keywords: environment, risks, trust, uncertainty. Beekman is at the Agricultural Economics Research Institute, The Hague, The Netherlands.
Beeman, Randal."Friends of the Land and the Rise of Environmentalism, 1940-1954." Journal of Agricultural and Environmental Ethics 8(1995):1-16. The rise of the postwar environmental movement is rooted in the development of ecological consciousness within intellectual circles as well as the general public. Though many commentators cite the 1960s as the focal point of the new environmentalism, the ecological ethic had actually evolved by the 1930s in the writings and speeches of both scientists and public commentators. Agricultural conservationists led the way in broadcasting the message of ecology. Friends of the Land, an agriculturally oriented conservation organization formed in 1940 and active through the 1950s, is an interesting example of how the agricultural community was an integral component in the rise of environmentalism. While Friends of the Land flourished only for a brief period, its goals and the ideas that the group represented illustrate how the ecological ethic was burgeoning by the early 1950s. Furthermore, the history of Friends of the Land is an important chapter in the ongoing quest for ecological agriculture and societal permanence. (JAEE)
