The forces of trumping growth with anti-growth dedicated Tuesday as "Sustainable Trade Day", featuring Lamy and WTO Director General Supachai Panitchpakdias as the introductory speakers. STD, as we'll call it, was accompanied by much lofty talk of including all potential interests in "sustainable development,” but in reality gathered like minded enviro-firsters to loudly complain about the WTO still not being the WEO (World Environmental Organisation - tC).

Lamy asserted that linking trade and environment is "a fundamental aspect of trade policy" and, indeed, of allowing trade liberalization to continue. Leaving no doubt as to the inherent, attendant consequences as described, Lamy cited the Cartagena Protocol on Biodiversity as an ideal. Cartagena, for the blissfully uninitiated, formalizes what's known as the Precautionary Principle of risk policy.
