Anti-Capitalistas

 

“Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring that about?”
– Maurice Strong, founder of the UN Environment Programme

 

“The only hope for the world is to make sure there is not another United States. We can’t let other countries have the same number of cars, the amount of industrialization, we have in the US. We have to stop these Third World countries right where they are.”
– Michael Oppenheimer, Environmental Defense Fund

 

“We must make this an insecure and inhospitable place for capitalists and their projects. We must reclaim the roads and plowed land, halt dam construction, tear down existing dams, free shackled rivers and return to wilderness millions of acres of presently settled land.”
– David Foreman, co-founder of Earth First!

 

“The big threat to the planet is people: there are too many, doing too well economically and burning too much oil.”
– Sir James Lovelock, BBC Interview

“My three main goals would be to reduce human population to about 100 million worldwide, destroy the industrial infrastructure and see wilderness, with it’s full complement of species, returning throughout the world.”
-Dave Foreman, co-founder of Earth First!

 

“A cancer is an uncontrolled multiplication of cells, the population explosion is an uncontrolled multiplication of people.  We must shift our efforts from the treatment of the symptoms to the cutting out of the cancer.  The operation will demand many apparently brutal and heartless decisions.”
– Prof. Paul Ehrlich, The Population Bomb

 

“One America burdens the earth much more than twenty Bangladeshes.  This is a terrible thing to say in order to stabilize world population, we must eliminate 350,000 people per day.  It is a horrible thing to say, but it’s just as bad not to say it.”
– Jacques Cousteau, UNESCO Courier

 

“If I were reincarnated I would wish to be returned to earth as a killer virus to lower human population levels.”
– Prince Philip, Duke of Edinburgh, patron of the World Wildlife Fund

 

“The extinction of the human species may not only be inevitable but a good thing.”
– Christopher Manes, Earth First!

 

“Childbearing should be a punishable crime against society, unless the parents hold a government license.  All potential parents should be required to use contraceptive chemicals, the government issuing antidotes to citizens chosen for childbearing.”
– David Brower, first Executive Director of the Sierra Club

 

A Ciência Dúbia ao Serviço de Intenções Políticas

 

“We need to get some broad based support, to capture the public’s imagination… So we have to offer up scary scenarios, make simplified, dramatic statements and make little mention of any doubts… Each of us has to decide what the right balance is between being effective and being honest.”
– Stephen Schneider, Stanford Professor of Climatology, lead author of many IPCC reports

 

“Unless we announce disasters no one will listen.”
– Sir John Houghton, first chairman of IPCC

 

“It doesn’t matter what is true, it only matters what people believe is true.”
– Paul Watson, co-founder of Greenpeace

 

“We’ve got to ride this global warming issue.  Even if the theory of global warming is wrong, we will be doing the right thing in terms of economic and environmental policy.”
– Timothy Wirth, President of the UN Foundation

 

“No matter if the science of global warming is all phony, climate change provides the greatest opportunity to bring about justice and equality in the world.”
-Christine Stewart, fmr Canadian Minister of the Environment

 

“The climate crisis is not a political issue, it is a moral and spiritual challenge to all of humanity.  It is also our greatest opportunity to lift Global Consciousness to a higher level.”
– Al Gore, accepting the Nobel Peace Prize

 

“The only way to get our society to truly change is to frighten people with the possibility of a catastrophe.”
– emeritus professor Daniel Botkin

 

Governo Mundial, Destruição da Soberania Estatal e dos Princípios Democráticos

 

“In Nature organic growth proceeds according to a Master Plan, a Blueprint.  Such a ‘master plan’ is missing from the process of growth and development of the world system.  Now is the time to draw up a master plan for sustainable growth and world development based on global allocation of all resources and a new global economic system.  Ten or twenty years from today it will probably be too late.”
– Club of Rome, Mankind at the Turning Point

 

“The concept of national sovereignty has been immutable, indeed a sacred principle of international relations.  It is a principle which will yield only slowly and reluctantly to the new imperatives of global environmental cooperation.”
– UN Commission on Global Governance report

 

“Democracy is not a panacea.  It cannot organize everything and it is unaware of its own limits.  These facts must be faced squarely.  Sacrilegious though this may sound, democracy is no longer well suited for the tasks ahead.  The complexity and the technical nature of many of today’s problems do not always allow elected representatives to make competent decisions at the right time.”
– Club of Rome, The First Global Revolution

 

Ambientalistas Melancias (verdes por fora mas VERMELHOS por dentro)

 

“A keen and anxious awareness is evolving to suggest that fundamental changes will have to take place in the world order and its power structures, in the distribution of wealth and income.”
– Club of Rome, Mankind at the Turning Point
