Spiritual Ecology and the Lesson of Crete

The Alien Next Door

If Gaia is our “Natural Mother” then Ecology is her language —Nina Munteanu. As much as I liked the integrative approach to this program, it is my belief that the “soft” science of Ecology should be taught as a basic course throughout a student’s entire school career (from Grade 1 to 12), giving it the prominence it deserves as a life-lesson mandate not unlike the three Rs.

Green (Living) Review

Calling for a move towards the economy serving ecology rather than the ecology serving the economy, CIWEM asks for a commitment to invest in the future health of the environment for societal benefit, and a move away from unsustainable GDP-centric and perpetual economic growth models. That’s why we’re asking governments to get to work; at the end of the day, the economy should serve the ecology that sustains us all.”

So, does Ecosia really have those claimed “impeccable ecological credentials”? In short, the answer has to be, probably not.
