Deep ecology encourages respect for the environment, not because humans depend on nature, but because nature and its inhabitants have inherent value. Many traditional worldviews see humans as masters of the planet, and humankind's destiny is to dominate, control, and exploit nature. Deep ecologists maintain that this is arrogant and, ultimately, self-destructive. They note that damage to ecosystems and species extinctions are occurring at a pace that may be unparalleled in the history of the earth. The survival of all the world's inhabitants, deep ecologists assert, will require human population reduction, modest living, and minimal consumption of scarce resources. Deep ecology, then, like biospirituality, is essentially a spiritual movement promoting respect and nonviolence.
