Hey? Hmmm. Is ecology the biologist's equivalent of theology? – ecology our largest global concern? – "save the planet" our Primus Parens mythology? Never thought of that.

Hmm. Let's see.

The relationship between humans and the Earth which is often presented is one of stewardship. That we are stewards of creation brings in fundamentally the notion of responsibility, first to God as the one whose stewards we are - we are to look after the Earth, not as we please, but as God wants it looked after. Second, we have responsibility to the rest of creation as ones who stand in the place of God. -- Sir John Houghton co-chairman of the IPCC and the lead author of the IPCC reports to governments on global warming.

If yes, I agree wholeheartedly with your debunking of the mythology as much as I agree with debunking theology. I admire your Sissyphean efforts. Have away.

"Isn't the only hope for the planet that the industrialised civilizations collapse? Isn't it our responsibility to bring that about?" -- Maurice Strong, head of the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro and Executive Officer for Reform in the Office of the Secretary General of the United Nations.

Well, so long as the Maurices of the world roll their stones, so shall i roll mine.
