“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

Hug the Monster

A new rhetorical strategy from climate scientists, congruent with what I've been saying: time to freak, in public! And make people freak, as much as possible!

I think that might have been my favorite thing that plopped out of my mouth unbidden in the Q&A at #c21nonhuman: “I know, I should have talked about love, not fear.” Happily it got a big laugh.
