So says author Gary Varner, whose new book The Mythic Forest, The Green Man and The Spirit of Nature (Algora Publishing) traces the traditions and beliefs about a mythical Green Man from ancient cultures to modern day architecture.
Says Varner, Even the current president talks about caring about the environment, but the Green Man archetype seems to surface in times when the environment is severely threatened.
He adds, I think youll be seeing his myth popping up in more and more places as the planet needs him.
Varner says that self-proclaimed eco-warriors like the so-called eco-terrorist group Earth Liberation Front, are perverting the Green Mans spirit.
According to Varner, If you burn a bunch of SUVs, thats only adding to the toxicity of the planet. Hows that helping anything?
