#53 / Earth Above Man
Pictured is Rick Santorum, Republican candidate for President. On February 19th, Santorum was reported to have said that President Barack Obama is "beholden to radical environmentalists, and has a world view that elevates the earth above man.”
Frankly, I wish the President were just a bit more "beholden" to all those "radical environmentalists," but I guess that's natural, since I could probably be counted as one of those "radical environmentalists" myself. Just for the record, the President has not always taken my advice.
I would bet that Mr. Santorum thinks that it's pretty "radical" for someone to suggest that "man" depends on the Earth (and not vice versa).
From my perspective, who could doubt it? Some kind of "radical" someone, I'd say!
