Thought for the Day

“Civilization is in no immediate danger
of running out of energy or even just out of oil.
But we are running out of environment—that is,
out of the capacity of the environment
to absorb energy’s impacts without risk
of intolerable disruption—and our heavy
dependence on oil in particular entails
not only environmental but also economic
and political liabilities.”
