“If people think nature is their friend, then they don’t need an enemy.”–Kurt Vonnegut
Clearly, anyone who took the brunt of Sandy can identify with that quote. Hurricanes, tornadoes, earthquakes, droughts, tsunamis. Nature packs plenty of punches. Wait, you mean it’s organic foods and natural remedies you embrace? OK, I’ll counter with hemlock, radon, arsenic, curare. Good grief, there are easily as many natural ways on this earth to kill us as their are to enhance us. And most of the rest of the universe would kill us in an instant. Sure, there is plenty of beauty and benefit in nature. But anyone who hasn’t grasped the implications of the second law of thermodynamics hasn’t a clue what nature really is–or how amazing it can be.
