Disagreeing on the basics: environmental debates reflect competing world views

Disagreeing on the basics: environmental debates reflect competing world views
In the past few years, the term 'sustainable development' has been adopted by groups espousing conflicting interests and values.

These each have their own set of assumptions about knowledge and values including their own vision of the proper human-environment relationships. They are referred to respectively as the Expansionist World View, and the Ecological World View.
