Coulter and others on the right think the earth is ours, to take and to rape.
That sort of mind can't grasp why this matters --
why it makes a difference that there are only a small number of these whales left.
or why we should care that we're ripping a hole in part of the ecosystem.
The world is a web, though. It's part of a whole. Destroy part, we risk destroying it all.
I know that's something lots of humans don't believe -- they think they're separate and apart from the rest of the world, created special, or different; that they have some sort of special deal and aren't going to have to suffer the consequence of an ecosystem crash. I wish I didn't have to live on the same planet, in the same ecosystem, with folks like that. Then I could just be amused by that sort of willfulness, that magical thinking, instead of terrified by it.
