Og et lille interview:
The Books Interview: Roger Scruton
Jonathan Derbyshire – 09 January 2012
Can you sum up the case for a conservative environmentalism that you make in your new book, Green Philosophy?
I’m trying to plot the structure of our thinking about environmental questions and to distinguish the positive ways of thinking from those that are dead ends. I am hostile to the idea that collective solutions have to be made by committees and then imposed top-down. I very much prefer bottom-up solutions.
You’re not a climate-change sceptic – but is there a reason why those who are sceptical usually place themselves on the right?
I go into this in the book. I think that, on the whole, risk-taking entrepreneurial characters regard nature as a sort of background that we can use for our own advantage. And if things go wrong, you change it. They tend to exaggerate the extent of human capacities and turn a blind eye to fate and to the power of nature.
