If we continue on this course, we will destroy even ourselves."- American Museum of Natural History
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has."- Margaret Mead"The environment is where we all meet; where we all have a mutual interest; it is the one thing that all of us share.
