    Globalization: I'm basically for it. I think that it can hurt a bit in the short term, but in the long term is the only realistic and viable option. I'll probably have mnore to say later, but in the meantime I thought this was interesting, and thoughtful, if not exhaustive and conclusive:
    Many environmentalists fear that the WTO promotes policies which enable corporations to escape national restrictions on business and environmental practices by calling such restrictions "trade barriers". For instance, one of my hero’s, the environmentalist and human rights activist Ken Sara-Wiwa, was slain by Abacha’s regime which was supported by Shell Oil. The argument goes something like – corporations such as ADM will now prop up similar horrid regimes (think Zimbabwe) and bypass the types of responsible environmental regulations forced on them by developed countries.

    That’s a valid argument.

    However, many environmentalists do see that cooperation fostered by international institutions is critical to effective environmental.
