Can you feel it?

I bet all of you reading this saw Avatar.

Perhaps there are two kinds of people. Those who can connect to the ecosystem's network, and those who can't.

I pity those who can’t. They are deaf without realizing it, and some (such as WUWT) are making fools of themselves as a consequence.

I pity those who can, because we feel the grief and rage and it is getting intolerable. To reference another great film: we're feeling 'a great disturbance in the force' as we lose forests and herds, and species after species.

So when you spot a Golden Eagle do you feel a thrill? Does walking through a forest give you a sense of peace? Does reading the news about the loss of pine forests in the US and Canada cause you grief?
