‘We are nature, because we are made of carbon. So is everything else.’

‘We've developed this relationship with carbon that has benefited us humans in many, many powerful ways… We now have the feeling that we're managing a planet, but what we're beginning to learn is that we're in a lot less control of things than we thought. And the power itself is dangerous.’

‘My vision for the future is where a hundred percent of our energy consumption comes from renewable sources, sources that do not emit carbon. This means that we no longer have to disturb her. We no longer have to dig her up as a fossil fue,l burn her, emit carbon dioxide into the air. Rather we can just leave her where she is.’
