“Our culture is called ‘materialistic,’
but that’s not even correct,
because ‘materialism’ implies that we value our possessions. And we don’t.

There’s no more pressing problem right now than the depletion of the earth.
The earth can tolerate a lot of punishment, but if there isn’t a change in the way we consume, there is no way it can survive.
We will gladly give money to help people in need. But we can’t equate the act of conservation with helping billions of people for generations to come.”
