'Is Physical Geography essential or just a little bit useful? Dr Charles Rawding, Edge Hill University
There is little left on the surface of planet earth that can be imagined as a pure and pristine nature absent of any human modification. On the other hand there is nothing unnatural about species, including ours, modifying their environments in ways that are conducive to their own reproduction. Ants do it, bees do it, and beavers do it most spectacularly. In the same way that there is nothing unnatural about an ant hill, so there is, surely, nothing particularly unnatural about New York City. (Harvey,2011:85)
