“It’s fair to say we have passed the point of no return on global warming and we can’t reverse the effects, but certainly we can dampen them,”said biodiversity expert Dr. Thomas Crowther in The Independent today.

“I’m an optimist and still believe that it is not too late, but we urgently need to develop a global economy driven by sustainable energy sources and start using CO2, as a substrate, instead of a waste product.” — Prof Ivan Janssens, recognized as a godfather of the global ecology field, in The Independent.

“…we are at the most dangerous moment in the development of humanity. We now have the technology to destroy the planet on which we live, but have not yet developed the ability to escape it… we only have one planet, and we need to work together to protect it.” — Professor Stephen Hawking yesterday in The Guardian.

  1. Awwww, I just read the Stephen Hawking article. I don’t consider him or people like him part of the privileged ‘elite’ – people like him have used their privilege and/or extraordinary gifts for the greater good and to give something back. We love our scientists.
