I listened to David Suzuki on the bus. His lecture was colourful but he admits to taking a purely scientific world view. I am against this. I am not against good science I just believe Suzuki does not crtique science the way it should be these days. The basic knowledge needs more thought. Also science as a world view and as a way of knowing nature is not really the only or best way.

I heard a Yukon artist on the TV arguing that we could not have a pure state of nature but we could temper our use of resources and justify our use and control and use less of nature and still survive. I like this view better than Suzuki's.

Suzuki is very famous and has probably done a lot of good.
