A collection of articles written about human interaction with nature. “Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, Nothing is going to get better. It’s not.” ― Dr. Seuss, The Lorax.

– inspiring/ embarrassing   
– encouraging/ discouraging 
– joyful/ maddening 
– constructive/ destructive
The following is my ongoing compilation of thoughts written about the human / nature relationship.I’d love to hear your reactions or thoughts about the articles in comments.
