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
