reproducing life and the fertility of all its inhabitants, may
lie at the center of the shift in worldview that must take
place if we are to move beyond extractivism 424
-Our culture pays precious little attention to the particular
vulnerabilities of children, let alone developing life 427
-Mossville is a textbook case for environmental racism 429
-As a culture we do a very poor job of protecting, valuing or even
noticing fertility 430
- Economy built on fossil fuels: lethal when extractivism
goes wrong and when it goes right 434
- Many examples of bottom-up threats, endangering the
youngest members of species 435
- Originally agriculture was a self-sustaining cycle 438
- Agriculture’s chemical dependency 439
-Many traditional agricultural societies have developed methods
to maintain soil fertility despite planting annual crops
-We are built to survive, resilient, capable of adapting 442
- Our systems are designed to promote more life: very
antithesis of extractivism
- It is primarily such cultures that have kept this
alternative way of seeing the world alive 443
-Countries like Bolivia and Ecuador have enshrined the “rights of
Mother Earth” into law 444
-These legal concepts are now being adopted and proposed in
non-ID contexts
