  •  It's not a matter of controlling nature (1+ / 0-)

    Which we are essentially helpless to do but rather a matter of being less disruptive of nature to avoid negative consequences.

    And I think that's an importiant distinction to make because (a) thinking we can control nature is delusional and (b) understanding that our disruption of nature has consequences that can be mitigated (to a degree) if we act demistifies the issue.

    I think being honest and pragmatic are really importiant, hence my remarks elswhere to the effect the issue needs re-framing in a context more people can relate to in terms of self-interest rather than relying on altruism, which tends to rank low on the scale of human motivators.
