Today is World Environment Day

Environment Day aims to raise awareness of the importance of respecting and doing your bit for the environment. Why not walk to work rather than driving, or take steps to reduce your carbon footprint in other ways?

I will be walking to work for a client today. I get some exercise in addition to respecting the environment.

Quotes on environment:

•“It is horrifying that we have to fight our own government to save the environment.” – Ansel Adams

•”We won’t have a society if we destroy the environment.”– Margaret Mead

•“The awareness of our environment came progressively in all countries with different outlets.” – Jacques Yves Cousteau

•”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, Yosemite National Park dedication, 1985

•”Our environmental problems originate in the hubris of imagining ourselves as the central nervous system or the brain of nature.  We’re not the brain, we are a cancer on nature.”  ~Dave Foreman, Harper’s, April 1990
