Nature-rights laws generally allow anyone who believes that nature’s “rights” are being violated to sue to prevent the violation and to seek redress.
It is easy to mock this movement and to not take it seriously. That’s how it will win.
Now former Texas Agriculture Commissioner Jim Hightower, a very influential voice on the left, has endorsed the extreme ideological agenda.
If nature has rights, that means everything does, which devalues “rights” just as a wild inflation deflates the worth of currency.
Most media with which I interact on this issue assume that advocating personhood for nature must be a fringe meme.
