A Personal Cosmic Game Report

June 4, 2001

Certainly there are citizens among us who truly believe that environmentalism is just an hysterical reaction to science and technology. To these folks, Rachel Carson and the Greenpeace movements are not heroic symbols to be cultivated from history lessons. Alternatively, radical ecologists and environmentalists and so-called back-to-nature evangelists are perplexed at the stubborness of the technologists and scientists who seem destined to corrupt and pollute in the name of progress and at the expense of Mother Nature.

Who has the edge in this battle? Who will be declared champions when all is said and done? There's no simple or easy conflict resolution here. It's difficult to say who will ultimately win and at what price.

On the other hand, on the cosmic baseball field (which by the way, makes use of virtual and green real grass) there are almost always winners and losers. In today's game, the tree-hugging, backpacking nature lovers have something to cheer about. Nature triumphed over technology, 5-3, in a well-played cosmic baseball game.
