“Was not their mistake once more bred of the life of slavery that they had been living?—a life which was always looking upon everything, except mankind, animate and inanimate—‘nature,’ as people used to call it—as one thing, and mankind as another, it was natural to people thinking in this way, that they should try to make ‘nature’ their slave, since they thought ‘nature’ was something outside them” — William Morris

Morton vs. Nordhaus and Shellenberger

So the LA Times published my letter criticizing those cheeky crypto-Republicans Ted Nordhaus and Michael Shellenberger, of “The Death of Environmentalism” fame!

Finally, I write something that more than three people read!

Come now, Timothy, chin up: your work's read by a good dozen of us, at least! But yes, a letter to the editor gives a healthy buzz, doesn't it?

I appreciate your sentiments, here and in the occasional note to the ASLE listserv. Good on you.
