An analogy can be drawn with watching the second and hour hands on a clock. Baird Callicott wrote: The Judeo-Christian Stewardship Environmental Ethic is especially elegant and powerful. A society with flood control ‘forgets’ how to structure its agricultural and urban ecosystems to withstand floods. Until we understand what we are as humans (what matter is) and how we are connected to the universe (reality), it is impossible for humanity to be wise, and to be able to evolve cultural knowledge that enables us to live in Harmony with Nature.

All kinds really do make up the natural world, and it takes all kinds of people to appreciate them from different points of view and in different ways. Their concerns were motivated by a combination of ethical and aesthetic responses to nature as well as a rejection of crudely economic approaches to the value of natural objects (a historical survey of the confrontation between Muir’s reverentialism and the human-centred conservationism of Gifford Pinchot (one of the major influences on the development of the US Forest Service) is provided in Norton 1991; also see Cohen 1984 and Nash (ed) 1990).

" Instead of seeing scarcity and famine as "inevitable, irrevocable, even benign, ,17 hunger is the 9 product of maldevelopment and requires social rather than deep ecological transformation. What we have here is thus another version of the ill-famed notion of "alternate modernity": instead of the critique of capitalism as such, of confronting its basic mechanism, we get the critique of the imperialist "excess," with the (silent) notion of mobilizing capitalist mechanisms within another, more "progressive," frame.

He didn't want to see areas subdivided for recreational "improvements" (homesites, public campgrounds, private and commercial leasing). From its early roots, it became increasingly rigorous and quantitative, and a century later provided the natural discipline for responding to the environmental challenges highlighted by Rachel Carson, Paul Ehrlich, and others. Furthermore, rather like Routley (see section 2 above), Singer argues that the anthropocentric privileging of members of the species Homo sapiens is arbitrary, and that it is a kind of “speciesism” as unjustifiable as sexism and racism.

Calcifuge: a plant that avoids calcareous soils. Until the early 1940s, even Picnic Point was private property, and only in the 1990s (with an extraordinarily far-sighted and generous gift of the last remaining parcel of non-UW shoreline property by the Frautschi family) did the university come to own the continuous 4.3-mile corridor of green.

Such considerations have led Tom Regan to label the implications of holistic ethics as “environmental fascism” (Regan, 1983/2004, p. 362). There were no bands of constant membership and no claims to territory or to resource areas. Yet consistent with its position is the expectation that a normative order corresponds to and reflects the functional order. Overland Flow: the downhill movement of a thin sheet of rainwater.

Belden Lane, a professor of theological studies, explores the role of these "fierce landscapes" in the development of the human spirit, and he travels firsthand to many of them, notably Mount Sinai and the deserts of the American Southwest, where seekers holy and profane have traveled before. "Desert and mountain places," he writes, "located on the margins of society, are locations of choice in luring God's people to a deeper understanding of who they are." 2007, Oxford University Press For millenia, ceremonies and initiation rites have helped societies survive and thrive by marking life transitions.
