|Aldo Leopold's Land Ethic: Is it Only Half a Loaf Unless a Consumption Ethic Accompanies It? Doug MacCleery, Assistant Director of Forest Management, USDA/Forest Service asks - Is the Shift to "Ecological Sustainability" on U.S. Public Lands Merely a Sophisticated "NIMBYism" Masquerading as a "Paradigm Shift"? He says that the true test as to whether a paradigm shift has really occurred will be whether society begins to see personal consumption choices as having an ethical and environmental content as well – and then acts upon them as such.|
Aldo Leopold's "A Sand County Almanac" may be out of print, but is still available. I got my copy through Bibliofind at http://www.bibliofind.com . Oxford University Press, GB263. ISBN 0-19-50077-8. 226 pages.
It really is a classic work.
