UPDATE: Stand down, comrades. A keen reader has found the text, which is now being examined.
WOULD any reader happen to have a copy of "Economic Rights and Environmental Wrongs" by Rose Anne Devlin and R. Quentin Grafton?
If so, could you drop an email to bunyipitude c/o hotmail? It is nothing but a hunch, but a relatively recent graduate of an august institution may have hit the books so hard during student days parts of the text became embedded in later writings.
Then again, there may be nothing there at all.
