Our approach to managing natural resources should be guided by a moral and ethical approach to life as well as by practical and scientific considerations. Examples abound of instances in which Americans have created and willfully ignored environmental externalities. These externalities have had racist consequences through their disproportional impacts on people of color, and they pose serious consequences for future generations.
