On his book Living through the End of Nature: The Future of American Environmentalism

Cover Interview of March 01, 2011

Editor’s note

Originally, this interview ran on the Rorotoko cover page under the headline

“An honest and humble path toward a green, just future.”

We highlighted two quotes.

On the first page:

“Environmentalism in a post-nature age involves finding a middle path that recognizes that all life is now on a co-evolutionary trajectory in which the human and nonhuman worlds shape one another.”

On the second:

“Neither environmentalists nor their critics can appeal to a given nature, human or otherwise, to justify their politics.”
