'I was marvelling at a tree the other day. What a splendid thing it is in and of itself, I mused. Quite pleasing to the eye and functional. It can make oxygen, provide shade, be lived in by birds and insects, bear fruit, be scampered tip by possums, hung off by bats and it holds the soil together so it doesn't blow away. It doesn't take much to run them either, a bit of water and some nutrients; otherwise, completely solar powered. Now, I can't make a tree but I can make sense of one. I understand how a tree works from books and Wikipedia but that does not, in any way, make me marvel at it less. In fact, it's even more impressive that it does what it does and is what it is, given how complicated the operation is.'

    'What if its too late? What if the damage is done? Our climate is changing, a shift that will be transformative. But like the intersectionality of our personal and social relations, the environmental effects of the Anthropocene do not begin or end with rises in global temperature, they are complicated by interconnected patterns of human influence over the natural world.'  (Jonathan Green Editorial Introduction)
