Professor David Suzuki, as ever, reminds us urgent warnings about our `collision course with Nature’ are nothing new.
This one came in 1992 …
Human beings and the natural world are on a collision course. Human activities inflict harsh and often irreversible damage on the environment and on critical resources. If not checked, many of our current practices put at serious risk the future that we wish for human society and the plant and animal kingdoms, and may so alter the living world that it will be unable to sustain life in the manner that we know. Fundamental changes are urgent if we are to avoid the collision our present course will bring about.
The above statement is also available as a PDF.
Professor Suzuki himself has deep insights regarding how to demonstrate that it is inevitable we must be having a huge impact on Earth’s ecosystems.
