“What we take for granted might not be here for our children.”
On the important Transcendental topic of nature and being a major part of it ourselves, Al Gore is right in saying that some things just might not be here! As Thoreau says, “Thank God men cannot fly, and lay waste to the sky as well as the earth.” Well, we now know that the sky has been ruined. Air pollution and airplanes have ruined our atmosphere with their awful toxins. We need to be mindful of this and save ourselves. Remember, according to transcendentalists, we are a part of nature. Be proactive in our protection of nature, our earthly counterpart!
