Quote Of The Day - Earth Day Edition

"To cherish what remains of the Earth and to foster its renewal is our only legitimate hope of survival." - Wendell Berry

Happy Earth Day, kids. Here's a link to a great story at Slate.com on how our obsession with carbon output has obscured one of the real dangers to our environment: the loss of habitats and ecosystems around the globe; something I've been talking about to anyone who will listen for a few years now. You can change all the light bulbs and car engines in the world, but if we're still constantly destroying ecosystems to build another farm/ranch/factory/shopping mall/house/apartment complex the human race is still going to be fucked in the long run.
