Tenet No. 3 (of 40) of A Conservationist Manifesto by Scott Russell Sanders

3.    “The scale of devastation caused by human activity is unprecedented, and is accelerating, spurred on by a global system of nation-states battling for advantage, and by an economic system addicted to growth and waste.  So the work of conservation becomes even more urgent.  To carry on in the midst of so much loss, we must have faith that people working together can reverse the destructive trends.  We must believe that our species is capable of imagining and achieving fundamental changes in our quality of life.”
