"I used to think that top global environmental problems were
biodiversity loss, ecosystem collapse and climate change. I thought that with 30 years of good science we could address these problems, but I was wrong. The top environmental problems are selfishness, greed and apathy and to deal with these we need a spiritual and cultural transformation and we scientists don’t know how to do that."
~ Gus Speth, former environmental advisor to Presidents Carter and Clinton, professor of Forestry & Environmental Studies at Yale (via arochausa)
