QUOTES

 


Anything less than aggressive action on the greatest environmental threat of all time is inexcusable.

– Arnold Schwarzenegger, December 20, 2007


The road to the future leads us smack into the wall. We simply ricochet off the alternatives that destiny offers: a demographic explosion that triggers social chaos and spreads death, nuclear delirium and the quasi-annihilation of the species… Our survival is no more than a question of 25, 50 or perhaps 100 years.

– Jacques Cousteau (1910-1997)


Water and air, the two essential fluids on which all life depends, have become global garbage cans.

– Jacques Cousteau (1910-1997)


This is the first age that’s ever paid much attention to the future, which is a little ironic since we may not have one.

– Arthur C. Clarke


“Evolution”

I’m ahead… I’m advanced.
I’m the first mammal to wear pants.
I am at peace with my lust.
I can kill cause in god I trust.
It’s evolution baby!

I’m a beast… I’m the man.
Buying stocks on the day of the crash.
On the loose, I’m a truck.
All the rolling hills I’ll flatten ‘em out.
It’s herd behavior… it’s evolution baby!

Admire me, admire my home,
Admire my son, he is my clone.
This land is mine, this land is free,
I’ll do what I want, yet irresponsibly.
It’s evolution baby!

I’m a thief, I’m a liar.
There’s my church, I sing in the choir.
Halelujah… Halelujah…

Admire me, admire my home,
Admire my song, admire my clothes.
Cause we know an appetite for nightly feasts.
Those ignorant Indians got nothing on me.
Nothing. Why? Because it’s evolution baby!

I am ahead… I am advanced,
I am the first mammal to make plans.
I crawled the earth, but now I’m higher.
2010 watch it go to fire.
It’s evolution baby! [2x]
Do the evolution!
Come on! [3x]
It’s evolution baby!

– Pearl Jam


The prevailing view holds that a stable population that does not tax the environment’s “carrying capacity” would be sustainable indefinitely, and that this state of equilibrium can be achieved through a combination of birth control, conservation, and reliance on “renewable” resources. Unfortunately, worldwide implementation of a rigorous program of birth control is politically impossible. Conservation is futile as long as population continues to rise. And no resources are truly renewable.

The Spirit in the Gene: Humanity’s Proud Illusion and the Laws of Nature

«As for pointing to our mental failures with scorn or dismay, we might as well profess disappointment with the mechanics of gravity or the laws of thermodynamics. In other words, the degree of disillusionment we feel in response to any particular human behaviour is the precise measure of our ignorance of its evolutionary and genetic origins.»

– Reg Morrison


«The Earth is not dying – she is being killed. And those who are killing her have names and addresses.»

– Utah Phillips


«OIL! The dinosaur tit we are currently in the process of sucking dry.»

– Woody Harrelson


«The National Government will regard it as its first and foremost duty to revive in the nation the spirit of unity and cooperation. It will preserve and defend those basic principles on which our nation has been built. It regards Christianity as the foundation of our national morality, and the family as the basis of national life.»

– Adolph Hitler, My New World Order
Proclamation to the German Nation at Berlin, February 1, 1933


More than any other time in history, mankind faces a crossroads. One path leads to despair and utter hopelessness. The other, to total extinction. Let us pray we have the wisdom to choose correctly.

– Woody Allen


This world that we have made as a result of the level of thinking we have done thus far creates problems which cannot be solved by the same level of thinking in which they were created.

– Albert Einstein
