Governance of the Ecological World

Barry Commoner, a world famous ecologist back in the 20th century, wrote the book The Closing Circle back in 1971.  In it, he postulated the following laws for the governance of the ecological world:

The First Law of Ecology:  Everything is connected to everything else

The Second Law of Ecology:  Everything must go somewhere

The Third Law of Ecology:  Nature knows best

The Fourth Law of Ecology:  There is no such thing as a free lunch
