Came across this winery, which plays Mozart music to the grapes in the vineyards.


I am not sure from a viticultural/horticultural/biological standpoint how the playing of music could impact grapes, because they have no auditory sense, but it's a nice idea.

Now, in a cornfield it might work well.  After all, corn has ears.

Hmmm.  Maybe Mr. Justice Douglas was correct in his dissent in Sierra Club v. Morton.  See,

The know a number of lawyers who are working in the "rights of nature" arena.  Some countries, such as Switzerland provide some standing for nature.  Its Constitution states, in Article 120(2), "The Confederation shall legislate on the use of reproductive and genetic material from animals, plants, and other organisms. In doing so, it shall take into account the dignity of living beings as well as the safety of human beings, animals and the environment, and shall protect the genetic diversity of animal and plant species’."

Ecuador, in 2008, added this Art. 10 to its new Constitution: "Nature shall be the subject of rights."

And New Zealand granted legal rights to Te Urewera National Park and Whanganui River.
