1. "My theory is that the success of the environmental movement is driven by two powerful forces—romanticism and science—that are often in opposition. The romantics identify with natural systems; the scientists study natural systems. The romantics are moralistic, rebellious against the perceived dominant power, and dismissive of any who appear to stray from the true path. They hate to admit mistakes or change direction. The scientists are ethical rather than moralistic, rebellious against any perceived dominant paradigm, and combative against one another. For them, identifying mistakes is what science is, and direction change is the goal."
    That’s my war. That’s what I’m fighting for, that’s what I’m losing friends for. No regrets, no prisoners.

  2. "Environmentalists own the color green. That’s extraordinary, an astonishing accomplishment. No movement has owned a color globally since the Communists took over red. Red means nothing now. How long will Green mean something?"
    Stewart Brand rules! And I don’t know of any “greener” man than him. :-)

  6. "… not the biological episode that collapses it all into a nanosecond of being and not being, but the slower arc of our leaving, the long goodbye… It is like the decommissioning of a great battleship."
