A VERY worthwhile read... Dec 8 2012
By L. Laurent - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
America, and the rest of the world, is suffering from a growing "Nature Deficit Disorder," as people become more and more detached from a natural world that is providing less and less food directly harvested from its ecosystems. Do we really want a future where individual harvest from the ocean or land is no longer possible? If there is any hope to save us from a decline into a bleak and impoverished future, it lies with people reconnecting to nature, either as professionals like Dr. Sagarin, or as enlightened amateurs - in the true sense of that word. As Aldous Huxley observed, "We can only love what we know, and we can never know completely what we do not love." Rafe Sagarin's purpose in "Observation and Ecology" is to remind us of the rewards awaiting each of us in being keen observers of the nature around us - at all scales. Only then will we love it enough to protect it from the consequences, intended and unintended, of our individual and collective actions.
As Pogo said, "We have met the enemy, and he is us." He might also have said, "We have met our problem-solver, and he is us."
