A Quote by Andrew Linzey on animals, ecology, minorities, responsibility, society, and world

Despite one or two minority appeals our society is not outraged at man's unremitting use of the animal world. Ecologists and environmentalists may talk of "ecological consciousness" or "environmental responsibility" but seldom, if ever, is this responsibility articulated towards other non-human species in particular.

Andrew Linzey (1952 -)
