From Wesley J. Smith at ENV:
Environmentalism is going mad. In the process, it’s becoming dangerous to human thriving and to our metaphysical self perception.
Last week, I wrote about rivers being declared “persons.” Now in India, glaciers have been similarly declared to be “living entities.” Specifically, a court has declared that rivers of ice have the “rights” of legal persons. More.
Reality check: The point about personhood for glaciers (and about rocks having minds) is not to increase their rights so much as to doom ours. To a progressive, humans are not special and consciousness is an illusion, which is why rocks rocks can have minds too.
No. They are not kidding. They have nothing else.
