E-M:/ Inequalities harm the environment.

------------------------------------------------------------------------- Enviro-Mich message from RC -------------------------------------------------------------------------

The greater the social inequalities in a country, the fewer efforts the country devotes to the environment: That's what CNRS [(French) National Center for Social Research] economists observe. Similarly, policies more attentive to redistribution should be less harmful to the environment.

As America races the core of its population to the bottom, we also kill our nation. Is it greed or stupidity... I argued that the rich have the ability to relocate where the poor are stuck where they are, or at least until their 'paradise' is desired by the rich.
