Catriona Sandilands, “Opinionated Natures: Toward a Green Public Culture”:

“Given what would seem to be the large political and ecological significance of something like a green public culture – meaning here a cultivated practice of reflection and imagination by which individuals’ opinion about nature might be debated and refined in public – I find it surprising that so very little attention has been paid to questions of these broadly performative dimensions of environmental politics. By and large, while there are many ecopolitical thinkers who address questions of democracy and citizenship, who argue for community access to scientific resources for ecological measurement and grassroots activism, and who address questions of representation and justice in their formulation of environmental issues, there is a widespread assumption that environmental politics are always already ‘political’ and that there are no particular conflicts between a ‘Biology First’ political logic and democratic political or epistemic goals.” (144-45)
