BBC News - A Point of View: Has our relationship with nature changed?

Interesting article and good to see Alain de Botton writing on this topic. Several aspects of it I dont agree with though eg this statement, "Nature doesn't remind us that we are small, but rather provides chilling, awesome evidence of our size and strength". He vastly overrates the power and influence of human beings - yes the evidence is that we can and are having a big impact on our planet but in the full scheme of things we are a blip, dust in the wind in fact.
