the nature business

“There is something fundamentally wrong in treating the Earth as if it were a business in liquidation.”

Herman Daly

“What are commonly referred to as ‘environmental crises’ are in fact symptoms of flawed governance systems…climate change is not the problem, it is merely one of the many symptoms of a deeper, systemic problem – namely that industrialised human societies have established exploitative, and hence unsustainable, relationships with Nature. ”

Cormac Cullinan (address to the United Nations, 2011)
