David Orr, professor of environmental studies and politics at Oberlin College, explains how our centralized, industrialized, corporate way of life makes us more vulnerable to acts of terrorism. But he offers a solution: He envisions replacing our extract-and-consume lifestyle with a stable economy that accounts for "natural capital," the forests, soils and watersheds on which we all depend. It would be hard, he says, but the consequences of continuing on our current path are likely to be much harder.
