overture to alabaster skin
"Why is it unimaginable, unthinkable, or absurd to talk about getting rid of electricity, but it is not unimaginable, unthinkable, and absurd to think about extirpating great apes, great cats, salmon, passenger pigeons, Eskimo curlews, short-nosed sea snakes, coral reef communities? (…) How would we act, and react, differently if we were not insane? And I mean that in the deepest sense, of being out of touch with physical reality."
