Love Vs. Ecological Devastation
Show Notes

Love may be the only workable response to the ecological devastation we face. Even fierce resistance goes better with love. To confront the sheer magnitude of our ecological polly-crisis and predicament without art in general, and poetry in particular, is not only a recipe for despair, it also reduces the likelihood of success by some major and terrifying degree.

The great writer and earth lover, Wallace Stegner once said, Something will have gone out of us as a people if we ever let the remaining wilderness be destroyed . . . One means of sanity is to retain a hold on the natural world.  Be a good animal by listening to this episode to learn  many more wise things said by Wallace Stegner, including how to be a good animal.
