Joseph Wood Krutch
Destroying rainforest for economic gain is like burning a Renaissance painting to cook a meal.
E. O. Wilson
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.
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 is horrifying that we have to fight our own government to save the environment.
There is a muscular energy in sunlight corresponding to the spiritual energy of wind.
I don't think we're going to save anything if we go around talking about saving plants and animals only; we've got to translate that into what's in it for us.

A majority of American citizens are now becoming skeptical of the claim that our carbon footprints, resulting from our use of fossil fuels, are going to lead to climatic calamities. But governments are not yet listening to the citizens.
Just as modern mass production requires the standardization of commodities, so the social process requires standardization of man, and this standardization is called equality.
