The Strength of Nature
We usually imagine that any human interference with the landscape does nothing but “invade”, modify, and often irreversibly sabotage nature.
For decades, the production of energy destroyed nature, marking the landscape with indelibale scars. At an old power station, high-voltage pylons are “colonized” by photovoltaic panels to protect a back pasture.
The propellers of wind turbines turn through the trees.
The mountain seems to tolerate these odd new appearances of different colours and sounds.
For man to find harmony in the dissonance between these different worlds, the environment and its concerns need to be close to humans, with utility and integrity.
Alternative energy should not be alternative to nature.
