Bob Brown Quotes
by Bob Brown
- There is little
doubt that human activity is causing the Earth to get hotter by increasing
the amount of gases that trap heat in its atmosphere.
- We are tampering
with the very systems that sustain life on Earth.
- Per capita, we
are one of the top three emitters of greenhouse gases in the world.
- Also in Queensland,
clearing of native vegetation is continuing at outrageous rates of 300
000 to 400 000 hectares per annum.
- About 70% of all
the carbon stored on the land is in forests and wetlands. Older trees
store very much more carbon than younger trees.
- Logging old forests
drastically depletes the pool of stored carbon, which can only be replenished
over hundreds of years. Plantations do not make up for logged wild forests.
- It will help us
reap the benefits of the best solar energy research in the world by
turning attention to renewable instead of fossil energy.
