the author the main problem with conservation is that it is what. and here

00:29

are the potential answers. well our author talks a lot of ethics and ecology [multiple choice options]

00:35

but it's not all hippie graphs and gluten-free granola. he seems to have

00:39

issues with the idea of conservation itself. check paragraph eight. in his

00:44

words conservation is paved with good intentions which proved to be futile or

00:48

even dangerous .well ahem. we all know where a road paved was good intentions

00:54

leads. so what's his problem well he never says conservation doesn't work or that

01:00

it's unethical. generally protecting the environment it's a good thing not an

01:05

evil or ineffective thing. and if we read further down he says that the ethical

01:10

frontier advances from the individual to the community. so clearly he's in support

01:15

of majority consensus. he's got no plans to become a carrot munching eco dictator.

01:20

oh he does write about the economics. but if anything he's against economics [thumbs up]

01:26

driving land use. after all not every single square foot of land has to have a

01:29

best buy on it .but he does say that the good intentions writing conservation are

01:34

devoid of critical understanding. basically he thinks that

01:38

conservationists are ill informed and over emotional. so C is correct. now

01:43

conserve your energy because you've still got more questions to go. maybe

01:47

grab a granola bar for a quick power up. what do you think. gluten-free? [woman frowns]
