Caring for Our Environment


“All the other things that we’ve done as a species have had a limited scope.

We’re now talking about melting the ice caps, raising the level of the seas dramatically, changing the distribution of every other species on Earth, perhaps wiping out one-third or half of them.

The changes at work now...will require change in every country. It will require a degree of global cooperation that we haven’t seen before.”

- Bill McKibben
