- The human
brain now holds the key to our future. We have to recall the
image of the planet from outer space.. a single entity in
which air, water, and continents are interconnected. That
is our home.
Suzuki # Future,
has failed in a very serious way to convey the most important
lesson science can teach: skepticism.
Suzuki # Education,
organic practices simply make sense, regardless of what overall
agricultural system is used. Far from being a quaint throwback
to an earlier time, organic agriculture is proving to be a
serious contender in modern farming and a more environmentally
sustainable system over the long term.
Suzuki # Environment,
- To me,
women are by far the most important group. But I also think
that elders are extremely important.
Suzuki # Woman,
- And that,
quite simply, is the issue. We live in a finite world with
finite resources. Although it may sometimes seem quite big,
earth is really very small a tiny blue and green oasis
of life in a cold universe.
Suzuki # Life,
- Our personal
consumer choices have ecological, social, and spiritual consequences.
It is time to re-examine some of our deeply held notions that
underlie our lifestyles.
Suzuki # Ecology,
especially people in positions of power.. have invested a
tremendous amount of effort and time to get to where they
are. They really don't want to hear that we're on the wrong
path, that we've got to shift gears and start thinking differently.
Suzuki # Leaders,
- We are
upsetting the atmosphere upon which all life depends. In the
late 80s when I began to take climate change seriously, we
referred to global warming as a "slowmotion catastrophe"
one we expected to kick in perhaps generations later. Instead,
the signs of change have accelerated alarmingly.
Suzuki # Nature,
- In the
environmental movement, every time you lose a battle it's
for good, but our victories always seem to be temporary and
we keep fighting them over and over again.
Suzuki # Action,
- The one
thing I feel is very hopeful, however, is the overwhelming
participation of women in the movement for change.
Suzuki # Woman,
