Planet Earth 0 embodies a critique, not just of Attenborough's original TV series – which was largely lacking in critical engagement with the contemporary anthropogenic processes destroying the natural world. In inviting the reader to gaze through this telescope, it posits the process of technological image capture as reinforcing the idea that nature/landscape/environment is separate from the human condition - and that we exist outside or in contrast to it. Yet, when looking through this telescope, nature may seek to prevent the separation from taking place!
