Beware of Minimal Impact Enviromentalists!

A minimal impact environmentalist is someone who thinks that we should retreat from "nature", preserving it in its "pristine" state. But placing a border between "us" and "it" is profoundly unnatural. It's a self-deprecating, destructive and almost impossible notion that rejects our fundamental evolutionary roots. Nature must be considered to include human cities, the solar system, interstellar and even intergalactic space.
