Whole Earth Review, no. 45 (March 1985)

RICHARD WATSON: The major journal in this field, and where most of the important papers are published.

KEVIN KELLY: Far more interesting than it sounds. Rousing debates on where in the balance these things should be weighed: species, individuals of species, agriculture of any type, man's comfort, animals' comfort, God, rational thought, and our inante curiousity and desire to fiddle withour surroundings. It's high-brow thrills but readable (recent article: "The Moral Standing of Natural Objects"). Makes most environmental-ish magazines (Sierra, Audubon) seem like glossy 4-H club bulletins.
