Only after the last tree has been cut down
Only after the last river has been poisoned
Only after the last fish has been caught
Only then will you find that money cannot be eaten
-Cree Indian Prophecy

"Therefore, while reflection on death may lead to resignation and acceptance, reflection on extinction must lead to exactly the opposite response: to arousal, rejection, indignation, and action. Extinction is not something to contemplate. It is something to rebel against."
-Jonathan Schell , The Fate of the Earth, 1982, page 184.

“We have geared the machines and locked all together
Into interdependence
We have built great cities;
Now there is no escape.

We have gathered vast populations incapable of free survival

Insulated from the strong earth,
Each person he himself helpless, on all dependent,

The circle is closed,
And the net is being hauled in.”
-Robinson Jeffers, Such Counsels You Gave to Me 1935-1938, The Collected Poetry of Robinson Jeffers: 1928-1938, page 518.

"There are no... limits to the carrying capacity of the earth that are likely to bind any time in the foreseeable future. There isn't a risk of an apocalypse due to global warming or anything else. The idea that we should put limits on growth because of some natural limit, is a profound error and one that, were it ever to prove influential, would have staggering social costs."
-Lawrence H. Summers, Bank Chief Economist, Background Briefing, interview with Kirsten Garrett, ABC,  November 10, 1991.

"In searching for a common enemy against whom we can unite, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like, would fit the bill. In their totality and their interactions these phenomena do constitute a common threat which must be confronted by everyone together. But in designating these dangers as the enemy, we fall into the trap…namely mistaking symptoms for causes. All these dangers are caused by human intervention in natural processes, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then is humanity itself."
-Alexander King and Bertrand Schneider,  The First Global Revolution: A Report by the Council of the Club of Rome, 1993, page 75.

“Your home is regarded as a model home, your life as a model life. But all this splendor, and you along with it... it's just as though it were built upon a shifting quagmire. A moment may come, a word can be spoken, and both you and all this splendor will collapse.”
-Henrik Ibsen, spoken by Lona Hessel in Pillars of Society, act 3, 1877.

‘‘ is worth discussing radical changes, not in the expectation that they will be adopted
promptly but for two other reasons. One is to construct an ideal goal, so that incremental
changes can be judged by whether they move the institutional structure toward or away from
that ideal. The other reason is very different. It is so that if a crisis requiring or facilitating
radical change does arise, alternatives will be available that have been carefully developed
and fully explored.’’
-Milton Friedman, Professor (Emeritus) of Economics at the University of Chicago, The Case for Overhauling the Federal Reserve, Challenge, vol. 28, 1985, page 12.

"We've got to ride this global warming issue. Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental policy."
-Timothy Wirth, President of the UN Foundation, U.S. Senator (D-Colorado) 1975-1987, quoted in Science under Siege, Michael Fumento, 1993, page 362.

"We need to get some broad based support, to capture the public's imagination... So we have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements and make little mention of any doubts... Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest."
-Stephen Schneider, Stanford Professor of Climatology, lead author of many IPCC reports, quoted in Discover, October 1989, page 47.

"A viable political substitute for war must posit a generalized external menace to each society of a nature and degree sufficient to require the organization and acceptance of political authority."
-Leonard C. Lewin, Report from Iron Mountain: On the Possibility and Desirability of Peace, 1967, page 96.

"The threat of environmental crisis will be the 'international disaster key' that will unlock the New World Order."
-Mikhail Gorbachev, quoted in A Special Report: The Wild lands Project Unleashes Its War on Mankind, Marilyn Brannan, Associate Editor, Monetary & Economic Review, 1996, page 5.

"On the very deceptions which the hostile light of knowledge should dissipate, they have based the whole structure of their happiness, and are they to purchase so dearly a truth which begins by depriving them of everything they value?"
-Friedrich Schiller, On the Aesthetic Education of Man, 1795, page 50.

“The worst forms of tyranny, or certainly the most successful ones, are not those we rail against but those that so insinuate themselves into the imagery of our consciousness, and the fabric of our lives, as not to be perceived as tyranny.”
-Michael Parenti, Inventing Reality, 1986, page 7.
