Negotiating environmental rights

Ethics, Place and Environment 11 (3):351 – 366 (2008)
Abstract
Environmental ethics arises as the output of a trade-off between our rights and nature's right to life. This negotiation secures the possibility of achieving sustainable developments, if it is conducted fairly. The rights of persons are delimited by their origin, as are the rights of the other. A person is the output of relationships taking place at three levels: (1) a material self; (2) a social self; and (3) a private or internal self. Pollution and war serve as an epitaph to remind us of failed ethical trade-offs in these associations
