(Art Director's Club of Houston 1994 Earth Day Celebration Recognition of Environmental Support)

The Earth is not in trouble: we're in trouble. The Earth is going to do just fine, thanks. Species come and go, regardless, though we may be the first to exterminate ourselves and everything else, too. Couple of hundred thousand-what the heck, maybe a million-years go by and it's as though we never existed. Bubble in the river of time. Buying a list of swell things you can do to save the Earth is like buying a diet book instead of going on a diet.

It's the illusion of action. Gives you that warm and fuzzy feeling of having done the right thing when in fact you've done nothing at all. We may be able to do something about the problems we're facing, but first we have to figure out what those problems are. Doing something about the wrong problem will only create new, and much worse, problems for somebody else to fix somewhere down the line. So, let's put on our thinking caps and stop pretending.
