|Enduring Technological Optimism: Zionism’s Environmental Ethic and its Influence on Israel’s Environmental History|
By Dr. Alon Tal
Israeli Nature Poll
"Pioneers frequently perceived the natural world as challenging, hostile wilderness to be tamed through diligent Jewish settlement. Songs extolling production, the beauty of concrete, and the importance of construction became part of a nationalistic liturgy. While Israeli Zionists were certainly not unaware of the splendor of the land of Israel, the task of nation building dominated their senses."
- Dr. Alon Tal
