Moreover, because poverty is posited as the cause of environmental destruction, once a sufficiently rich point is reached, there will be enough money to address the harms done to the natural environment by unrestricted economic growth. The problem with this heavenly chorus, to roughly paraphrase E. E. Schattschneider, is that it sings with a distinctly economic elite accent. Growing voices of resistance to this chorus are emerging from the third world upon whom the New World Order has placed its boot.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
