Quote of the Day

“The earth is polluted neither because man is some kind of especially dirty animal nor because there are too many of us. The fault lies with human society —with the ways in which society has elected to win, distribute, and use the wealth that has been extracted by human labour from the planet’s resources.” — Ecologist Barry Commoner, The Observer 9 January 1972.
