"The irreversible changes in nature, the alteration of the balance between biosphere and technosphere are there for all to see. To turn back now in many cases is impossible. Today the situation is such that we have to understand how to avoid new catastrophes. In any case, the twenty-first will be the century which will severely test the solidity and the survival of our civilization. We must not forget this."
"How do we help this vital system make the transition to a decentralized future, with power supplied by gas, sun, wind, and hydrogen instead of coal, oil, and nuclear fission? No one fully knows. But some general rules are obvious. Plan far ahead, and plan for the welfare of the whole system, not just the utilities or the big consumers. Remember that demand reductions are just as effective as supply increases, and cheaper and cleaner."

"What you do is as important as anything government does. I ask you to seek a common good beyond your comfort; to defend needed reforms against easy attacks; to serve your nation, beginning with your neighbor. I ask you to be citizens: citizens, not spectators; citizens, not subjects; responsible citizens, building communities of service and a nation of character.
~ George W. Bush
"Our thoughts about the future go far toward creating it; our minds and hearts are like filaments that connect today to tomorrow. They are conduits for either the status quo or the emergence of different, hopefully more loving, possibilities. How we think and how we behave determine where we are going"
