This quote highlights the reason behind the suppression of environmental impact studies. It suggests that the practical recommendations derived from ecological principles often challenge the vested interests of commerce. As a result, the financial and political power generated through such investments is sometimes used to suppress these studies, as they pose a threat to these established interests. The quote implies that conflicts arise when economic benefits clash with environmental concerns, leading to efforts to prevent or minimize the study and disclosure of potential negative impacts.
What's so exciting and terrifying about the writing process is that it really is an act of exploration and discovery. With all of us, not just writers, there is a sort of knowledge of the other. We have a lot more in common than we realize, and I think writing is really a sustained act of empathy.http://www.randomhouse.com/boldtype/0300/dubus/interview.html
