E. O. Wilson
All is connected... no one thing can change by itself.
We may achieve climate, but weather is thrust upon us.
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.
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.
I think so long as fossil fuels are cheap, people will use them and it will postpone a movement towards new technologies.
