Nature is neither friend nor foe, neither malevolent nor benevolent.

Nature is purposeless, Nature simply is. We may find nature beautiful or terrible, but those feelings are human constructions. The relationship between nature and us is one-sided, there is no reciprocity. We should not be concerned about protecting our planet: Nature can survive far more than what we can do to it and is totally oblivious to whether homo sapiens lives or dies. Our concern should be about protecting ourselves: because we have only ourselves to protect us.
