John Muir

Take a course in good water and air; and in the eternal youth of Nature you may renew your own. Go quietly, alone; no harm will befall you.

John Muir

Thank God men cannot fly, and lay waste the sky as well as the earth.

Henry David Thoreau

They claim this mother of ours, the Earth, for their own use, and fence their neighbors away from her, and deface her with their buildings and their refuse.

Sitting Bull

Every time I have some moment on a seashore, or in the mountains, or sometimes in a quiet forest, I think this is why the environment has to be preserved.

Bill Bradley

People blame their environment. There is only one person to blame -- and only one -- themselves.

Robert Collier

No one should be able to enter a wilderness by mechanical means.

When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the universe.

John Muir

American culture is torn between our long romance with violence and our terror of the devastation wrought by war and crime and environmental havoc.

Katherine Dunn

We must return to nature and nature's god.

Luther Burbank

Birds are indicators of the environment. If they are in trouble, we know we'll soon be in trouble.

Roger Tory Peterson

I see humanity now as one vast plant, needing for its highest fulfillment only love, the natural blessings of the great outdoors, and intelligent crossing and selection.

Luther Burbank

It is horrifying that we have to fight our own government to save the environment.

Ansel Adams

People in Slow Food understand that food is an environmental issue.

Michael Pollan

There is no question that photography has played a major role in the environmental movement.

Galen Rowell

I think the environment should be put in the category of our national security. Defense of our resources is just as important as defense abroad. Otherwise what is there to defend?

Robert Redford

The environmental movement, like all political processes, reacts best to disasters. But these are very slow, very gradual disasters in the making.

Ted Danson

I know they are all environmentalists. I heard a lot of my speeches recycled.

Jesse Jackson

I decided that now is the time to start doing the things that really interest me and I find important. It was in the 10 years of the MacArthur grant that I began working on my first book... and I began putting more work into environmental history.

Jared Diamond

By polluting clear water with slime you will never find good drinking water.

Aeschylus

I have a private plane. But I fly commercial when I go to environmental conferences.

Arnold Schwarzenegger

Climate change is a terrible problem, and it absolutely needs to be solved. It deserves to be a huge priority.

Bill Gates

All our environmental problems become easier to solve with fewer people and harder - and ultimately impossible to solve - with ever more people.

David Attenborough

If we're destroying our trees and destroying our environment and hurting animals and hurting one another and all that stuff, there's got to be a very powerful energy to fight that. I think we need more love in the world. We need more kindness, more compassion, more joy, more laughter. I definitely want to contribute to that.

Ellen DeGeneres

We're running the most dangerous experiment in history right now, which is to see how much carbon dioxide the atmosphere... can handle before there is an environmental catastrophe.

Elon Musk

Biofuels such as ethanol require enormous amounts of cropland and end up displacing either food crops or natural wilderness, neither of which is good.

Elon Musk

As you heat the planet up, it's just like boiling a pot.

Elon Musk

I'm anti-tax, but I'm pro-carbon tax.

Elon Musk

The reality is gas prices should be much more expensive then they are because we're not incorporating the true damage to the environment and the hidden costs of mining oil and transporting it to the U.S. Whenever you have an unpriced externality, you have a bit of a market failure, to the degree that eternality remains unpriced.

Elon Musk

I've used the prestige and influence of having been a president of the United States as effectively as possible. And secondly, I've still been able to carry out my commitments to peace and human rights and environmental quality and freedom and democracy and so forth.

Jimmy Carter

Keep close to Nature's heart... and break clear away, once in awhile, and climb a mountain or spend a week in the woods. Wash your spirit clean.

John Muir

Human civilization as we know it is like the Titanic headed for the iceberg, whether the iceberg be nuclear, environmental or terrorism-related.

Marianne Williamson

There are plenty of problems in the world, and doubtless climate change - or whatever the currently voguish phrase for it all is - certainly is one of them. But it's low on my list.

P. J. O'Rourke

Every drop in the ocean counts.

Yoko Ono

A shift is necessary toward lifestyles less geared to environmental damaging consumption patterns.

Maurice Strong

I am on the board of corporations who contribute both to environmental problems and their solutions. And I am on the NGO side: the Earth Council and other organizations.

Maurice Strong

I've developed a huge regard for Toyota for its environmental awareness, for its immense commitment to research and development in this field, and for its leadership in developing hybrids which others are now following.

Maurice Strong

One of the things that I've always thought I would like to do is to develop an environmental index. Then people can measure their own environmental performance on an index as they do in other ways.

Maurice Strong

Ted Turner is still a leader. And he sets a great example. His ability financially has been reduced, but his influence and his example still is an important asset to the whole environmental movement.

Maurice Strong

When we realize we can make a buck cleaning up the environment, it will be done!

Dennis Weaver

I firmly believe that we can have a healthy environment and a sustainable timber industry.

Frank Murkowski

The environment is everything that isn't me.

Albert Einstein

Pushing production out of America to nations without our environmental standards increases global environmental risks.

Frank Murkowski

In today's world, it is no longer unimaginable to think that business can operate - and even thrive - in an environmentally-friendly manner.

Olympia Snowe

Since the day he came into office, President Bush has worked to gut more than 34 years of hard work by weakening many of our Nation's standing environmental laws, some of which were signed into law by his father.

Jim Jeffords

This Bush administration has a growing credibility gap, maybe even a credibility chasm, on environmental policy. The President has lost the trust of the American people when it comes to the environment.

Jim Jeffords

We have fought for social justice. We have fought for economic justice. We have fought for environmental justice. We have fought for criminal justice. Now we must add a new fight - the fight for electoral justice.

Barbara Boxer

Much of the debate over global warming is predicated on fear, rather than science.

James Inhofe

I think it makes people in the Pentagon kind of nervous to know that chemical agents and environmental factors could cause so much damage in terms of what may happen in the future.

Bernard Sanders

One planet, one experiment.

Edward O. Wilson

I align myself with almost all researchers in assuming that anything we do is a composite of whatever genetic limitations were given to us by our parents and whatever kinds of environmental opportunities are available.

Howard Gardner

Architects in the past have tended to concentrate their attention on the building as a static object. I believe dynamics are more important: the dynamics of people, their interaction with spaces and environmental condition.

John Portman

A very Faustian choice is upon us: whether to accept our corrosive and risky behavior as the unavoidable price of population and economic growth, or to take stock of ourselves and search for a new environmental ethic.

E. O. Wilson

The global environment crisis is, as we say in Tennessee, real as rain, and I cannot stand the thought of leaving my children with a degraded earth and a diminished future.

Al Gore

Even the most ardent environmentalist doesn't really want to stop pollution. If he thinks about it, and doesn't just talk about it, he wants to have the right amount of pollution. We can't really afford to eliminate it - not without abandoning all the benefits of technology that we not only enjoy but on which we depend.

Milton Friedman

Federal elections happen every two years in this country. Presidential elections every four years. And four years just isn't long enough to dismantle all the environmental laws we've got in this country.

Jared Diamond

The real cure for our environmental problems is to understand that our job is to salvage Mother Nature. We are facing a formidable enemy in this field. It is the hunters... and to convince them to leave their guns on the wall is going to be very difficult.

Jacques Yves Cousteau

There are a tremendous amount of environmental issues that are on the table.

Ed Rendell

And secondly, I would impose a significant state landfill tipping fee and use that tipping fee to fund the billion dollar bond issue that I want to create to produce the funds for all of the environmental challenges that we just went over.

Ed Rendell

All we can hope for is that the thing is going to slowly and imperceptibly shift. All I can say is that 50 years ago there were no such thing as environmental policies.

David Attenborough

The most important environmental issue is one that is rarely mentioned, and that is the lack of a conservation ethic in our culture.

Gaylord Nelson

In the state of Wisconsin it's mandated that teachers in the social sciences and hard sciences have to start giving environmental education by the first grade, through high school.

Gaylord Nelson

Franklin Roosevelt was very concerned about environmental issues.

Gaylord Nelson

Loads of chemicals and hazardous wastes have been introduced into the atmosphere that didn't even exist in 1948. The environmental condition of the planet is far worse than it was 42 years ago.

Gaylord Nelson

Unless action is taken soon - unless we can display the same vision of that earlier period - we will lose the treasure of California's open space and environmental beauty.

The Long Island Sound is an environmentally unique estuary that needs to be protected.

Tim Bishop

Local innovation and initiative can help us better understand how to protect our environment.

Gale Norton

There is no place where we can safely store worn-out reactors or their garbage. No place!

David R. Brower

It seems that every time mankind is given a lot of energy, we go out and wreck something with it.

David R. Brower

I don't think we're going to save anything if we go around talking about saving plants and animals only; we've got to translate that into what's in it for us.

Jim Fowler

My entry into the environmental arena was through the issue that so dramatically - and destructively - demonstrates the link between science and social action: nuclear weapons.

Barry Commoner

The environmental crisis arises from a fundamental fault: our systems of production - in industry, agriculture, energy and transportation - essential as they are, make people sick and die.

Barry Commoner

The modern assault on the environment began about 50 years ago, during and immediately after World War II.

Barry Commoner

In every case, the environmental hazards were made known only by independent scientists, who were often bitterly opposed by the corporations responsible for the hazards.

Barry Commoner

Environmental concern is now firmly embedded in public life: in education, medicine and law; in journalism, literature and art.

Barry Commoner

Earth Day 1970 was irrefutable evidence that the American people understood the environmental threat and wanted action to resolve it.

Barry Commoner

By adopting the control strategy, the nation's environmental program has created a built-in antagonism between environmental quality and economic growth.

Barry Commoner

Environmental quality was drastically improved while economic activity grew by the simple expedient of removing lead from gasoline - which prevented it from entering the environment.

Barry Commoner

The wave of new productive enterprises would provide opportunities to remedy the unjust distribution of environmental hazards among economic classes and racial and ethnic communities.

Barry Commoner

The most meaningful engine of change, powerful enough to confront corporate power, may be not so much environmental quality, as the economic development and growth associated with the effort to improve it.

Barry Commoner

The environmental crisis is a global problem, and only global action will resolve it.

Barry Commoner

We should restore a proper balance in environmental regulation and energy production that is based on common sense, not political agendas.

Mac Thornberry

I don't see this planet being... they're talking about how they're turning around the environmental problems here, but I think it's already too late.

Ace Frehley

We have a project with Unocal here in Los Angeles, where we as an environmental organization, the oil company, and the state all get together to promote the recycling of used motor oil.

Ted Danson

We're not trying to reinvent the wheel; for any environmental organization to claim sole responsibility for any kind of victory is insane, because everybody attacks these problems as a group.

Ted Danson

Address these environmental issues and you will address every issue known to man. And we keep dabbling in things that aren't really that important in the long term.

Ted Danson

My idea of an amusement park story is getting adventurers to go tour environmental disaster areas. After all, if the entire Great Barrier Reef gets killed, which seems like an extremely lively possibility, what are you going to do with all that rotting limestone?

Bruce Sterling

I reflect back 35 years ago, and look how far we have come in America with our environmental policy to improve the conditions of our air and water, and we have had some real successes.

Jay Inslee

We had some major successes and we did so because the country embraced the spirit of Earth Day and embraced this concept that we have to have forward-looking, visionary environmental policy and energy policy in this country.

Jay Inslee

I like the outdoors and the natural world. Environmental issues.

Mackenzie Crook

Complexity is one of the great problems in environmental design.

Christopher Alexander

In this country, the health concerns and the environmental concerns are as deep as in Europe. All the surveys show that. But here, we didn't have the cultural dimension. This is a fast-food culture.

Jeremy Rifkin

The position I took at the time was that we hadn't really examined any of the potential environmental consequences of introducing genetically modified organisms.

Jeremy Rifkin

The government should set a goal for a clean environment but not mandate how that goal should be implemented.

Dixie Lee Ray

Mankind is considered (by the radical environmentalists) the lowest and the meanest of all species and is blamed for everything.

Dixie Lee Ray

I assume we will have figured out a way to efficiently utilize solar energy and tied that to an efficient way to use nuclear energy in such a way that it doesn't pose a serious environmental issue.

John Hickenlooper
