Quotes on environment, economics and climate change

I’m saving some quotes for my thesis here:

Sooner or later, we will have to recognise that the Earth has rights, too, to live without pollution. What mankind must know is that human beings cannot live without Mother Earth, but the planet can live without humans. Evo Morales

Some people call it global warming; some people call it climate change. What is the difference? Frank Luntz

There is no question that climate change is happening; the only arguable point is what part humans are playing in it. David Attenborough

Your life~the way it looks today is a result of your choices…What will you choose today for your tomorrows? – Robert G. Allen

When all the trees have been cut down,
when all the animals have been hunted,
when all the waters are polluted,
when all the air is unsafe to breathe,
only then will you discover you cannot eat money. – Cree Prophecy

If the wars of [the 20th] century were fought over oil,
the wars of the next century will be fought over water.— Ismael Serageldin, former VP for sustainable Development at the World Bank (Newsweek, 1995)

 Water will be to the 21st Century what oil was to the 20th.—Fortune Magazine

Sitting still is relative, moving is absolute

This saying is well-known. Presumably, you are considered staying still  relative to your car while you are driving, whereas, you are moving relative to the earth. Thus, sitting and  moving are defined according to a datum point.

However, I realise that moving is absolute regardless of the datum point you choose. If you use a precise enough ruler to measure the distance between two certain things,  that distance should be changing by a extremely small amount every moment. So nothing sits still in all dimensions!

We all know that time is just a dimension of space. Time doesn’t stand, either do space.

This could be generalized to explain the existence of multiverse.

I think the big thing is related closely to small things in atoms. Moreover, as time could become space and the reverse does hold, it should be possible to store a multiverse in small things like atoms. A multiverse could possibly originates in our small hands. If that is true,  circle is absolute.

P/S: I have been obsessed by the idea that we are just a copy of “real things”, and we are, the whole universe, on the surface of a black hole, just codes for duplicating “real things”. It seem reasonable as astronomers have been long time used the “codes” of stars to tell human’s future. It could be possible that the future has happened and saved in the orders of the stars.
