Metaphor

This is really entirely unrelated to anything on our plot, but I’ve just read it (in a THE oddly) and like it.

‘Imagine taking a jumbo jet apart and laying all the pieces on the ground. Then select the smallest pieces and throw them away. Then put the plane together and invite your friends to fly in it. This is what we seem to have done to our ecosystems – taken out all of the small bits while assuming the system will still work without them.’

Hmmmm.
