I’m reading Plan B 2.0 by Lester Brown right now. I’m not done, but I love this quote:

“One of the questions I am frequently asked when I am speaking in various countries is, Given the environmental problems that the world is facing, can we make it? That is, can we avoid economic decline and civilizational collapse? My answer is always the same: it depends on you and me, on what you and I do to reverse these trends. It means becoming politically active. Saving our civilization is not a spectator sport.” Lester Brown

Amen Lester.
