European and Christian thought have long encouraged humans to have dominion over the Earth and all of Nature. Viewing the Earth as something to dominate or capitalize upon makes it easy to extract resources without care, to pollute, and to relinquish responsibility for our actions. This western worldview is out of balance. If the Earth is not a commodity upon which to build individual economic wealth, what is she then?
