Inger Andersen

You might recall when I talked about Loinfruit’s idea that our earth is some kind of sentient being, not in the way that one would ordinarily picture. He says the the earth knows that she is ill, and, just as our bodies fight infection, she is trying to heal herself.

Inger Andersen is the executive director of the UN Environment Program. She had a recent interview with the Guardian:

Nature is sending us a message… There are too many pressures at the same time on our natural systems and something has to give…We are intimately interconnected with nature, whether we like it or not. If we don’t take care of nature, we can’t take care of ourselves. And as we hurtle towards a population of 10 billion people on this planet, we need to go into this future armed with nature as our strongest ally.”

Frau Grace used to love snails. About 30 years ago she learned that they are akin to slugs. She hasn’t touched one since.

    Lobsters are related to black widow spiders so no lobsters? No crabs? No shrimps?

    No, I am allergic to lobsters and cannot eat them.
