The whole picture is complicated by the stockists and merchants who will try to exploit any shortages that may appear.The result is this. The feedback information from the industry’s environment consists, first and foremost, of a forward order load. Much of this “demand for steel” will be bogus.

Humankind has not woven the web of life. We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect.

This fight against drilling in the Arctic Refuge is a fight about our principles. It’s about standing up for our environment, our families and our future, and I won’t give up this fight.

We will be one of the extinguished species. The good news is that life on the planet will recover and peace will return to the environment.

Boris Johnson has real contempt for Londoners. He hates that we celebrate each other’s heritage; he hates that we try to pass on a healthy environment to our children; he hates that we look after our most vulnerable neighbours; and most of all he hates that we all expect to share in our city’s financial success.

We have modified our environment so radically that we must now modify ourselves to exist in this new environment.

[M]y administration is committed to a leadership role on the issue of climate change.

We must be certain that the repair to the environment is sufficient to allow wild species to recover and survive.

The struggle to save the global environment is in one way much more difficult than the struggle to vanquish Hitler, for this time the war is with ourselves. We are the enemy, just as we have only ourselves as allies.

The behavior of an individual is determined not by his racial affiliation, but by the character of his ancestry and his cultural environment.

The magnificence of mountains, the serenity of nature – nothing is safe from the idiot marks of man’s passing.

Your conscious mind is the captain and the master of your ship, which represents your body, environment, and all your affairs.

It is horrifying that we have to fight our own government to save the environment.

The more we exploit nature, The more our options are reduced, until we have only one: to fight for survival.

Environments are not just containers, but are processes that change the content totally.

We generate our own environment. We get exactly what we deserve. How can we resent a life we’ve created ourselves? Who’s to blame, who’s to credit but us? Who can change it, anytime we wish, but us?

I think Democrats are right. We fight for the American dream, for the environment, for privacy rights, a woman’s right to choose, a good public education system.

What is imposed on us by birth and environment is what we are called upon to overcome.

It is the system, rather than individuals, that is the source of pollution and degradation. My prison-house environment is but another manifestation of the Midas-hand, whose cursed touch turns everything to the brutal service of Mammon.

All the vital mechanisms, varied as they are, have only one object, that of preserving constant the conditions of life in the internal environment.

The struggle to save the global environment is in one way much more difficult than the struggle to vanquish Hitler, for this time the war is with ourselves. We are the enemy, just as we have only ourselves as allies. In a war such as this, then, what is victory and how will we recognize it?

Our modern industrial economy takes a mountain covered with trees, lakes, running streams and transforms it into a mountain of junk, garbage, slime pits, and debris.

A margin of life is developed by Nature for all living things – including man. All life forms obey Nature’s demands – except man, who has found ways of ignoring them.

We have to shift our emphasis from economic efficiency and materialism towards a sustainable quality of life and to healing of our society, of our people and our ecological systems.

If you wish to avoid foreign collision, you had better abandon the ocean.

Living simply has resulted in us becoming more aware of the environment and the impact we have on it.

Our environmental problems originate in the hubris of imagining ourselves as the central nervous system or the brain of nature. We’re not the brain, we are a cancer on nature.

In an underdeveloped country, don’t drink the water; in a developed country, don’t breathe the air.

I think the environment should be put in the category of our national security. Defense of our resources is just as important as defense abroad. Otherwise what is there to defend?

The difference between animals and humans is that animals change themselves for the environment, but humans change the environment for themselves.

We have fought for social justice. We have fought for economic justice. We have fought for environmental justice. We have fought for criminal justice. Now we must add a new fight – the fight for electoral justice.

When a man wantonly destroys one of the works of man we call him a vandal. When he destroys one of the works of god we call him a sportsman.

If all mankind were to disappear, the world would regenerate back to the rich state of equilibrium that existed ten thousand years ago. If insects were to vanish, the environment would collapse into chaos.

Civilization… wrecks the planet from seafloor to stratosphere.

When you grow up in that (multi-ethnic) environment, you see the world differently. Being a mixed-race child, I didn’t always see colour in people, I really didn’t. It was other people that made me see the colour all the time.

If they don’t act, we will. Shame on them but we cannot sit around and watch our environment deteriorate and put this world in jeopardy. We are willing to stand up, we think it is one of the seminal issues of our time.

When one tugs at a single thing in nature, he finds it attached to the rest of the world.

Like living creatures, automobiles expired when their environment became saturated with their own excreta. We ourselves are living creatures. We don’t want the same to happen to us.

We must all work together in order to save the environment and the world that we live in from further change.

We won’t have a society if we destroy the environment.
