Over the next decade and into the 21st century, a nation’s economic strength will be significantly enhanced if it practices proper resource management and operates a clean, eco-friendly economy. Jobs and economic prosperity will be among the first to suffer if a nation is at war with its environment; if it over-cuts its forests, over fishes its oceans, erodes its best farm land and endangers itself with outdated energy-, waste-, and pollution-intensive industrial policies. Marrying economy and ecology will increasingly become the new win-win agenda for a nation’s success. In the future, the choice for nations will not be between ecology and economy, it is likely to be between eco-nomic prosperity or no prosperity at all.
