Concern for the fate of the great rivers of the earth must lead us to reflect soberly on the model of development which our society is pursuing.

But no matter how big the effort to push a propaganda line might be, climate change is bigger. This, undoubtedly and regrettably, is the biggest immediate long-term environmental challenge we face.

Principles always have natural consequences attached to them.
There are positive consequences when we live in harmony with the principles. There are negative consequences when we ignore them.
