Environmentalism is the modern age fashionable animist religion. The belief natural objects, nature and, likely, the Universe itself, possess an immortal soul or conscience. Man’s role is to tender and prevent that frail order from being disturbed. By means of some twisted manicheism, man is also its vowed enemy. He should sacrifice is instincts, comfort, wealth and even life to that most valuable ideal. It means well but seldom passes the test of reason. It very often ends up destroying what it meant to protect.
