Sorting old papers last weekend, I found letter from London editor about book chapter I contributed to a book about green politics in Europe. I wrote about green lifestyle change, having recently published my first book, Home Ecology. His letter said that he had removed references to meat and butcher shops because “this is a green book.” The certainty of some environmentalists that their particular position is Truth never appealed to me, and the variety of certainties was always amusing. I remember a letter from a reader that said I should have made it clear the only “green” form of education was home schooling.Â Sounds a lot like religious fundamentalism, doesn’t it?
