Date of Interview
This interviewee believes human consumption patterns and profit-driven interests lead to ecological decline and, thus, environmental injustice. She bolsters her position with international examples of corporatization that have led to inequities for small communities, pointing out that local environmental and social issues are reflective of what is happening on a global scale. Moreover, she believes there are important linkages between human health and environmental stewardship. She also believes that a balanced consideration of ecosystem and human needs must be adopted by environmentalists lest the latter appear too strident. The interviewee’s approach to environmental justice favors an anthropocentric perspective.
