Quote of the Day -- C.S. Lewis takes on the environmentalists

This from a letter in today's National Post.

"What we call Man's power over Nature turns out to be a power exercised by some men over other men with Nature as its instrument". -- C.S. Lewis

I don't know in what context C.S. Lewis wrote this, but you would have to go a long way to find an apter description of the socialist-environmentalist movement.

And that's the Way the Ball bounces.

Some men may have power over others but I wonder if we ever really have power over nature.
