“We are nothing but what we derive from the air we breathe, the climate we inhabit,” wrote J. Hector St. John de Crèvecoeur in his Letters from an American Farmer (1782). “Those who live near the sea, feed more on fish than on flesh, and often encounter that boisterous element. This renders them more bold and compromising.”

The earth is beautiful and bright and kindly, but that is not all. The earth is also terrible and dark and cruel.

—Ursula K. Le Guin, 1970
