As discussed by others (Gilligan 2009, Fleischner 2011), instruction in natural history, with its focus on observation, understanding of place, and effective communication about these observations, is an excellent way to develop these key skills in an integrated fashion. It must be noted here the contribution of Adolf Gilitsch, the lithographer who translated them from sketch to print. The same can be said for researchers in a number of fields who contributed to ecological thought well into the 1940s without avowedly being ecologists.

The danger that social ecologists and others see is that what these deep ecologists envision will become a new kind of a totalitarianism or "eco-fascism" – in other words, some kind of world government which would compel people to change their social practices and totally control their behavior to make it consistent with the demands of the ecosphere.
