Scientific observations.

"We do not float above the biosphere in some higher spiritual or technoscientific plane. Life swarms around us, and even in us.... For many reasons, not least our own well-being, we need to take better care of the rest of life. Biodiversity ... will pay off in every sphere of human life, from medical to economic, from our collective security to our spiritual fulfillment."
