Description:

The reprinted resource explains how "shifting baselines" refers to the incremental lowering of standards, with respect to nature. Because of this, each new generation: lacks knowledge of how the environment used to be, redefines what is "natural," according to personal experience, and sets the stage for the next generation's shifting baseline.
