Don’t get me wrong I am not discrediting the primacy of words or of the word. Simply pointing out the discrepancy. Symbols are largely unavoidable in that we are in that world. We have shifted the focus and now with climate science nature comes back to the table. We keep delaying, undermining and debating for no good reason. Science it seems was our friend until climate science came along. The truth is climate science can be a bridge. We need that kind of bridge. It isn’t really a division but due to attitudes it remains so. Climate science would build a bridge from the natural world to the symbolic and finally they can coexist.
