Please read this book. There is nothing derogatory about "being green" and loving creation. It is a short text which wraps a ribbon around ourselves as human, created, spiritual, and most importantly, as just one cog in the works of Creation. Joanna Macy is never preachy - she's a Buddhist! - she is sincere, loving, wise and whole. We are "greening ourselves" all over the world! The earth is asking us to speak up, not to hide behind chainsaws and investment portfolios, fracking and driving our energy on the blood of the earth. The legs we cut down are our own, the water we poison is the 99% of which our human body is constituted, the money in our bank is paper. The earth has given us everything we need, and the West just sees the earth as something separate - not as the All There Is it is. Read this.
