The damage caused to the environment by activities of human beings is a major source of concern in contemporary world politics. Of all the species existing on earth, we are the only ones who are damaging the very surroundings in which we live. While there is increasing awareness about the anthropogenic impact on planet earth, efforts to control and check this damage are thwarted by constraints arising from concerns about such measures adversely affecting economic growth. This study attempts to explore the linkages between trade and environment in the context of the evolution of the United States trade policy and determine how economic growth can be achieved for all without endangering the global commons.
