It’s unusual because of its ecocentric point of view, that is, it places intrinsic value on all living organisms and their natural environment, regardless of their perceived usefulness or importance to human beings and it employs a nature-centered, as opposed to human-centered, system of values.
This issue features beautiful photos of Gatineau Park, by Tony Cassils, designed to help one realize that the Earth is indeed beautiful. There are many other wonderful illustrations too.
Read about ecocentric issues associated with water, a free-flowing subject that reveals the urgent need for humanity to change its course. There is an article dealing with legal person hood for rivers, an idea whose time has come. Still on water, Captain Paul Watson has an article titled Neptune’s Navy: a Global Initiative.
One of today’s great problems, that of people knowing about the ecological crisis but yet unwilling to do anything about it is discussed in Luke Plotica’s essay Against enlightened inaction: Edification from Thoreau.
Dandelions are flowers dear to my heart, and they have an article: Dandelions are Devine.
As usual, there is superb art, grand photographs and interesting poetry.
