Classic Barry Commoner wisdom

Here are four key lessons from environmental legend Barry Commoner, as repeated by Andy Revkin on NY Times’ Dot Earth:

– Everything Is Connected to Everything Else.
– Everything Must Go Somewhere.
– Nature Knows Best.
– There Is No Such Thing as a Free Lunch.

More on Commoner’s life and work can be found here. He’s worth reading about in more detail.

I think Revkin is right: he is a more significant figure than Rachel Carson, although perhaps less well known.
