If what is suggested here is correct, then we urgently need to explore the context-dependent development of institutional environmental economics, along with a richer conception of the human moral situation. It is not obvious, for example, how to combine our primary moral concern for other human beings and their welfare with our equally moral concern for other species and the systems that permit their flourishing. To say we need not choose one morality - a human-centred one - over another - a life-centred one, for example - is not yet to tell us how to synthesize the different demands that each moral scheme places on us.
