Pollution is result of unlimited growth By MURDOCH MACLEOD Herald Staff Writer North American growth must be stopped or it will be stopped by Alberta Real Estate Association convention delegates were told Saturday. Michael an associate professor in the University of British Colum- bia's faculty of said that although growth does make individuals and society its disadvantages include high density urban living and extensive pollution. The question was not we afford zero said Dr. but we af- ford even controlled am not a very great believer in technological solutions to es- pecially he said. For he DDT was sprayed in Borneo in the 1950s to kill mosquitoes and stop malaria. But that caused the spread of the plague. Mosquitoes were eaten by which concentrated the DDT. Lizards were eaten by which concentrated the DDT enough to kin the cats. The cats had been keep- ing rats in and an increased rat population spread the plague. the people were dying of plague instead of said Dr. Goldberg. solution was to have the Australian air force fly in more he concluded. Another said Dr. was the Prairie wheat economy. Prairie grasses had natural resistance to threats to their but wheat had to be protected by herbicides and fertilizer. It thus took about two calories of energy to produce enough wheat for one calorie'of a very efficient way ot converting fuel oil to just finding out that energy is the basic unit of value in said Dr. Goldberg. He said all examples were biased in his I didn't come here to be fair but to get a point He also suggested a number of possible solutions' to urban problems. no more motorways should 'be built into and out from cities. High speed roads attract said Dr. and increase pollution. Pollution from carbon monoxide and unburned hydrocarbons drops as vehicle speed but that from ox- ides of nitrogen he said. High speed freeways in the Los Angeles area had been built to cut pollution but had increased it because of the ox- ides of nitrogen. Los Angeles they found out that the best way to achieve maximum pollution in a sunny climate is to build high speed said the speaker. He also suggested tolls to get into cities and limited parking with higher rates.

Dr. Goldberg suggested stopping construction of new not issuing building permits and limiting the energy supply. The problem with zero growth would be that the poor would not get any more unless it were taken from the rich. a problem I'm not going to deal just to show you I'm not a rampant socialist. If I were a rampant socialist I would worry about the poor said Dr. Goldberg. Dr. Goldberg said society should be like a large where there is a lot of activity at any but no new tree or animal can until an old tree or animal dies. Decisions on growth would have to be made through the political process by an inform- ed Dr. Goldberg concluded. Experts should not be allowed to make he but could only give ad- vice.
