We should see ourselves as duty-bound to take a much more cautious approach to the management of this resource than is currently the case.Byron Williston is an Associate Professor and Chair of the Department of Philosophy at Wilfrid Laurier University and he is the Green Party Candidate for Kitchener Centre.
