dc.description.abstract“With our smoggy air, our polluted water, our eroded and denuded land, and our decaying cities, environmental quality is an all-important emotional subject. The public is somewhat inclined to accept the thesis that everything man has done bas degraded the environment and that it we would just get off the earth, it would again be a land of milk and honey. I must disagree with this thesis on two counts: One, the West was not a land of milk and honey until man put water on the land; and two, I for one am not about to get off the earth, not if I can help it. I like it here despite the problems of our day and intend to do what I can within my particular sphere of activity to make it a better place to live.”
