This is a poetic essay that examines the role of humanity in the making of the current ecological crisis from the point of view of “The Census-Taker of the Skies.” James Rorty was an American author who pioneered the role of “social ecologist.” Rorty examined technology, culture and the economic basis of an environmentally sustainable society in ways that are still relevant today.
