This week’s column, landing on Earth Day, beckons us to respect not only the earth and ocean, but the “heavens” above. . .
“In our short-sightedness, we view vast, beautiful open wilderness places—spaces—as prime real estate open for exploitation, mining “resources,” and pushing our puny human plans out beyond Planet Hubris. In my view, we should treat The Sky as wilderness, and protect it like a National Park (I once proposed a Neil Armstrong Moon Wilderness Park). Would it help to claim the moon, and all celestial orbs, as sacred sanctuary?”
