Technology and nature are historically interconnected
A Stanford historian argues that our sense of the past and present is more comprehensive when nature and technology are viewed as interdependent rather than in opposition. He applied this thinking to land and water reforms in Mexico. Stanford historian Mikael Wolfe argues that technology and nature are usually thought of as opposites, but he advocates for what is known as an envirotech approach to the historical relationship between the two - technology and the environment should be seen as interconnected.
