So says this chap, well known nature loverhttp://www.telegraph.co.uk/earth/11071261/Sir-David-Attenborough-the-escalating-erosion-of-wildlife-threaten-us-all.html[^]

Well, I am not so sure. Mans buildings are no more than cliffs to wildlife, and happily use them as such; our house is a veritable zoo for bats, lizards, nesting birds, scorpions and all sorts of spiders, bees, wasps and creepy crawly stuff. And the cats cant get them in the loft space either.

Motorway embankments and verges have long been recognised as cross country transit routes for all sorts of wildlife since they are not farmed, continuous ribbons of wild nature. Train tracks too.

So lets say we don't grow in population, already achieved in Europe, and don't actively pollute the world, by not chucking chemicals into it, I don't see why man AND his activities cant fit into nature perfectly well.

Any objections?
