The fifth revolution will come when we have spent the stores of coal and oil that have been accumulating in the earth during hundreds of millions of years. . . . It is to be hoped that before then other sources of energy will have been developed. . . . Whether a convenient substitute for the present fuels is found or not, there can be no doubt that there will have to be a great change in ways of life. This change may justly be called a revolution, but it differs from all the preceding ones in that there is no likelihood of its leadings to increases of population, but even perhaps to the reverse.
      - Charles Galton Darwin

      - Marya Mannes

We won't have a society if we destroy the environment.
      - Margaret Mead

A town is saved, not more by the righteous men in it than by the woods and swamps that surround it.
      - Henry David Thoreau
