Try to leave the Earth a better place than when you arrived.
We have no reason to think that climate change is harmful if you look at the world as a whole. Most places, in fact, are better off being warmer than being colder. And historically, the really bad times for the environment and for people have been the cold periods rather than the warm periods.
The reality is gas prices should be much more expensive then they are because we're not incorporating the true damage to the environment and the hidden costs of mining oil and transporting it to the U.S. Whenever you have an unpriced externality, you have a bit of a market failure, to the degree that eternality remains unpriced.
Raising awareness on the most pressing environmental issues of our time is more important than ever.
Yet, despite our many advances, our environment is still threatened by a range of problems, including global climate change, energy dependence on unsustainable fossil fuels, and loss of biodiversity.
Our world faces a true planetary emergency. I know the phrase sounds shrill, and I know it's a challenge to the moral imagination.
Thank God men cannot fly, and lay waste the sky as well as the earth.
Henry David Thoreau
Take a course in good water and air; and in the eternal youth of Nature you may renew your own. Go quietly, alone; no harm will befall you.
Much of the debate over global warming is predicated on fear, rather than science.
A true conservationist is a man who knows that the world is not given by his fathers, but borrowed from his children.
John James Audubon
People need to be cautious because anything built by man can be destroyed by Mother Nature.
The Endangered Species Act is the strongest and most effective tool we have to repair the environmental harm that is causing a species to decline.
It's not unexpected that shooting massive amounts of water, sand, and chemicals at high pressure into the earth to shatter shale and release natural gas might shake things up. But earthquakes aren't the worst problem with fracking.
Every creature is better alive than dead, men and moose and pine trees, and he who understands it aright will rather preserve its life than destroy it.
Henry David Thoreau
It is horrifying that we have to fight our own government to save the environment.
Destroying rainforest for economic gain is like burning a Renaissance painting to cook a meal.
E. O. Wilson
Every time I have some moment on a seashore, or in the mountains, or sometimes in a quiet forest, I think this is why the environment has to be preserved.
They claim this mother of ours, the Earth, for their own use, and fence their neighbors away from her, and deface her with their buildings and their refuse.
There is a muscular energy in sunlight corresponding to the spiritual energy of wind.
Without the oceans there would be no life on Earth.
All is connected... no one thing can change by itself.
After all, sustainability means running the global environment - Earth Inc. - like a corporation: with depreciation, amortization and maintenance accounts. In other words, keeping the asset whole, rather than undermining your natural capital.
It seems to me like Mother Nature's mercy and forgiveness have run dry, as we ceaselessly abuse her and take her for granted in order for us to continue our addiction to using fossil fuels. I've gotta say, I don't blame her. Not one bit.
Every drop in the ocean counts.
I did not become a vegetarian for my health, I did it for the health of the chickens.
Isaac Bashevis Singer
John F. Kennedy
Martin Luther King, Jr.
