"For most of humanitiy's existence, we were a local tribal species perhaps meeting a hundred people during a lifetime spent within the confines of a couple hundred square kilometers. But now we have become so powerful, we are undermining the air, water, soil, energy and biodiversity that we depend upon for our survival and lifestyles. Today, we have to consider the collective impact of all 6.5 billion people alive today. We've never had to do that before. It's hard." The David Suzuki Foundation.
