"If we weren’t living in a state of denial all the time, the whole idea of sustainability would clearly be our first priority. How is it that we can live in a world where we use the Earth in ways that are destroying it and not worry? We all know we have to breathe; we all know we have to drink water, we all know we have to eat food; and, we all know it’s got to come from somewhere. So why isn’t the preservation of the environment our first priority? It makes such logical sense that it’s irritating to have to say it."
