Comments on  nature-deficit disorder, etc


In a remarkable study several years ago, Selin Kesebir of the London Business School and the psychologist Pelin Kesebir of the University of Wisconsin at Madison found that references to nature in novels, song lyrics, and film story lines began decreasing in the 1950s, while references to the human-made environment did not.

We now occupy a nearly natureless world.

  1. I suspect that “writing” “is becoming a ,more urban profession, and the writers are overwhelmingly so. But see any recent Tweet by Helen or Tim Dee, and the enthusiastic response, to know nature writing is aelive and well.

    By the way, thanks as always for keeping the old place going, and for consistently finding such good material! !
