    “I used to think that environmental problems were biodiversity loss, ecosystem collapse and climate change. I was wrong. The top environmental problems are 

    • selfishness
    • greed
    • apathy

    and to deal with these, we need a cultural and spiritual transformation. And we scientists don’t know how to do that.”

    Since 1989 David Suzuki has been calling for action and urgency.

    “Transformational paradigm shift:

    That respect for nature and interdependent with it must be our top priority.”


    Nature was our touchstone and our reference pint and dictated the way we interacted with it. But as economics and politics have increasingly come to dominate our decisions and actions, we have lost our sinse of place in the world and our reverence for nature.

    -David Suzuki

    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.

    -Chief Seattle, 1854
