David Suzuki Quotes
from David Suzuki
- But human borders
mean nothing to air, water, windblown soil or seeds or migrating fish,
birds or mammals.
- Yet in elevating
the economy above those principles, we seem to think we are immune to
the laws of nature. We have to put the "eco" back into economics.
- The current economic
system is fundamentally flawed and inevitably destructive.
- Protecting the
biosphere should be our highest priority or else we sicken and die.
- Other things, like
capitalism, free enterprise, the economy, currency, the market, are
not forces of nature, we invented them. They are not immutable and we
can change them.
- If we continue
to set human borders and the economy as our highest priorities, we will
never come to grips with the destructiveness of our activities and institutions.
- So now the challenge
is to imagine a different world where our wealth is in human relations
and the things we do together, and we learn to live in balance with
the rest of nature.
- Even meeting Kyoto
targets barely makes a dent in what we have to achieve.
- If Canada, one
of the richest nations in the world, can't meet Kyoto targets, why should
China or India give any considerations for meeting the targets?
- If we can keep
it below a two degree rise, maybe conditions won't go totally crazy.
In order to meet those two degrees we have to reduce by 90 per cent
in the next 10 years.
