    What’s new, humans are the “global weed species” that are the catalysis for all other weed species. Or maybe humans are a “plague of locust”. My eyes glaze over with the expondentail growing list of human induced environmental degradation. I hope to wake up to discover this is but a nightmare.

Quote

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
