• Considering the institutionalized forms of ecophobia in the United States, is it necessary to enact a Civil Rights of Nature? I claim that conceptually linking the Constitutional protections enabled by the American civil rights movement to an emerging civil rights of nature would enable the rapid transition away from ecophobic attitudes toward anti-naturism laws that help restore, redress, and revitalize US ecologies. After all, since the US Constitution secures for Americans a “Supreme Law of the Land,” shouldn’t that law of the land protect the environment on which it is anchored?
