We’ve had conversations with hundreds of people on the themes in our book: a) our love of nature, b) the effect of people on nature, c) our emotional reaction to and personal stance on behalf of nature, and d) solutions to the nature-culture conflict. We’ve also talked about mowing the great American lawn, hopefulness versus despair over the future, pollination, climate change, ecological design, and much else.
