Constitutional Rights for Nature

So as usuall i start reading a book on some sub-topic of climate change and the whole blog veres in that direction. This time i`m reading "Environmental Justice and the Rights of the Indigenous Peoples" by Laura Westra and therefore law has become my area of interest.

In this video lawyer Cormac Cullinan is interviewed by Jacqui Brown at Seattle University School of Law's Center on Corporations, Law, and Society. The discussion is not entirely free of controversy...anyone feel strongly about property rights?

"Cullinan, a former anti-apartheid activist, is author of Wild Law, in which he asserts the necessity of creating a new structure of law that recognizes the inherent and legally enforceable rights of natural communities and ecosystems."
