Someone wrote to me: “If you can persuade people that cutting off their kids’ foreskins, putting plates through their lips, blowing themselves up with gelignite or celibacy is a grand idea, it shouldn’t be so hard to persuade them to get proud of their caterpillars”.
This also goes for flared trousers. The point being that there might be a way to change people’s views about nature. This would have significant implications for climate policy. We must ask rabbis, imams, priests and witch doctors for their advice.
