I am very much with Monbiot in this article on the parallels between perceptions of Art and Nature (see previous posts) however I think he under values nature in this regard. Lets face it Nature is way more important than Art However important Art is to me personally, it is only spiritually and psychologically sustaining whereas Nature sustains physically as well.
I love nature. For this I am called bourgeois, romantic – even fascist
Those of us who defend the planet are increasingly subject to abuse. It is the price we pay for confronting the power of money
