David Suzuki Quotes
from Dr David Suzuki
- We've got to start
reducing immediately and I don't think the political courage is there
to do that.
- I think it's a
stop-gap measure and we've got to find a way to grow grain for food
and use the waste and ferment the waste and make ethanol from that.
- I think that the
SUV, socially, has almost become like having syphilis or something;
you're embarrassed to have it.
- I don't stay optimistic
or pessimistic; I just have hope.
- We're going down
a very dangerous path and I believe we now have a very narrow window.
- I'm at the end
of my life; I have more than I need of everything. Whatever happens
now is not going to affect me, but it's going to affect my grandchildren.
- I've got to do
everything I can to make sure that my grandchildren don't say to me,
"Grandpa, you could have done more."
- And the Americans
are fond of saying: well, that's the price of progress. I don't think
it's progress to use up the rightful legacy of future generations.
- So the change
has been absolutely dramatic in my lifetime. The fish I took for granted
as a child are simply not there.
- I'm ashamed of
the fact that the United Nations - which has a resolution to ban all
deep sea bottom dragging - my country, along with Australia and New
Zealand and the United States, is opposing this.
- And yet we're all
trumpeting clean coal and sequestration of carbon dioxide. This is insane.
It's absolutely insane, but it all comes from chauvinism.
- We're a critter
that stands on the ground, we don't give a damn what's under there,
we think it's all uniform. We don't give a damn what's under the water
that covers 70% of the earth.
- There's never been,
in the four billion years that life has existed, a single species able
to alter the biological, chemical and physical features of the earth
as we are doing now.
- And now we are
doing it with the power of our science and our technology and our absolutely
insatiable, consumptive demand. We now are transforming the earth.
- We've filled up
the planet. We can't move somewhere else. And now for the first time
in history, we have to consider what is the collective impact of 6.5
- You see over 400,000
years, carbon dioxide wiggles up and down and then suddenly in the last
20 years, you see it curve up.
- I've always used
the metaphor of a car. I feel we're in a car heading at a brick wall
at 100 miles an hour and everybody in the car is arguing about where
they want to sit.
