«Keeping the [global economic] bubble from bursting will require an unprecedented degree of international cooperation to stabilize population, climate, water tables, and soils – and at wartime speed. Indeed, in both scale and urgency the effort required is comparable to the US mobilization during World War II.»
Lester R. Brown, Plan B (2003)

«There are many things we do not know about the future. But one thing we do know is that business as usual will not continue for much longer. Massive change is inevitable. Will the change come because we move quickly to restructure the economy or because we fail to act and civilization begins to unravel?»
