David Suzuki Quote: “The medical literature tells us that the most effective ways to reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer, stroke, diabetes, Alzheimer’s, and many more problems are through healthy diet and exercise. Our bodies have evolved to move, yet we now use the energy in oil instead of muscles to do our work.”
David Suzuki Quote: “Our planet has not seen an extinction crisis as serious as the one in progress for 65 million years.”
David Suzuki Quote: “It’s not unexpected that shooting massive amounts of water, sand, and chemicals at high pressure into the earth to shatter shale and release natural gas might shake things up. But earthquakes aren’t the worst problem with fracking.”
David Suzuki Quote: “Feeding our energy appetite is top of mind for many people these days.”
David Suzuki Quote: “But human borders mean nothing to air, water, windblown soil or seeds or migrating fish, birds or mammals.”
David Suzuki Quote: “Think about a seed. Once it lands, it’s stuck. It can’t move to find better soil, moisture or sunlight. It’s able to create every part of itself to grow and reproduce with the help of air, water and sun.”
David Suzuki Quote: “With an estimated population of nine billion people by 2050, we cannot continue to consume resources at the same rate and maintain our quality of life.”
David Suzuki Quote: “Humans are now the most numerous mammal on the planet. There are more humans than rats or mice. Humans have a huge ecological footprint, magnified by their technology.”
David Suzuki Quote: “Thanks to evolution, our bodies have powerful ways to ward off illness and infection and enable us to live long and healthy lives. Why, then, do health costs continue to climb at unsustainable and frightening rates?”
David Suzuki Quote: “Global trade has advantages. For starters, it allows those of us who live through winter to eat fresh produce year-round. And it provides economic benefits to farmers who grow that food.”
David Suzuki Quote: “If we continue to set human borders and the economy as our highest priorities, we will never come to grips with the destructiveness of our activities and institutions.”
David Suzuki Quote: “A book is like a single tree in a forest, in that it exists in conjunction with and because of a great many others around it.”
David Suzuki Quote: “Ultimately we need to recognize that while humans continue to build urban landscapes, we share these spaces with others species.”
David Suzuki Quote: “One of the joys of being a grandparent is getting to see the world again through the eyes of a child.”
David Suzuki Quote: “Any scientist who tells you they know that GMOs are safe and not to worry about it, is either ignorant of the history of science or is deliberately lying. Nobody knows what the long-term effect will be.”
David Suzuki Quote: “With the world’s human population now at seven billion and growing, and the demand for technology and modern conveniences increasing, we can’t control all our negative impacts. But we have to find better ways to live within the limits nature and its cycles impose.”
David Suzuki Quote: “Some argue we should get coal, oil and gas out of the ground as quickly as possible, build more pipelines and make as much money as we can selling it here and abroad. Their priorities are the economy and meeting short-term energy needs so we can live the lives to which we’ve become accustomed.”
David Suzuki Quote: “How you imagine the world determines how you live in it.”
David Suzuki Quote: “The voluntary approach to corporate social responsibility has failed in many cases.”
David Suzuki Quote: “We must reinvent a future free of blinders so that we can choose from real options.”
David Suzuki Quote: “Planting native species in our gardens and communities is increasingly important, because indigenous insects, birds and wildlife rely on them. Over thousands, and sometimes millions, of years they have co-evolved to live in local climate and soil conditions.”
David Suzuki Quote: “We have become a force of nature.”
David Suzuki Quote: “Education has failed in a very serious way to convey the most important lesson science can teach: skepticism.”
David Suzuki Quote: “My earliest memory from childhood is of fishing with my father. And I remember vividly we were in a store, and we were buying a pup tent to go on our first camping trip.”
David Suzuki Quote: “So we draw lines around our property, our counties, our cities, our states, our countries. And, boy, do we act as if those lines are important. I mean, we go to war. We will kill and die to protect those boundaries. Nature couldn’t give two hoots about our national boundaries...”
David Suzuki Quote: “The human brain now holds the key to our future. We have to recall the image of the planet from outer space: a single entity in which air, water, and continents are interconnected. That is our home.”
David Suzuki Quote: “For the sake of our health, our children and grandchildren and even our economic well-being, we must make protecting the planet our top priority.”
David Suzuki Quote: “A balance between sustainable ecology and sustainable human life, on the one hand, and the unfettered drive for profit, on the other, is just an oxymoron.”
David Suzuki Quote: “If we humans are good at anything, it’s thinking we’ve got a terrific idea and going for it without acknowledging the potential consequences or our own ignorance.”
David Suzuki Quote: “Rapid population growth and technological innovation, combined with our lack of understanding about how the natural systems of which we are a part work, have created a mess.”
David Suzuki Quote: “Other things, like capitalism, free enterprise, the economy, currency, the market, are not forces of nature, we invented them. They are not immutable and we can change them.”
David Suzuki Quote: “Each of us has the ability to act powerfully for change; together we can restore that ancient and sustaining harmony.”
David Suzuki Quote: “Treaties, agreements and organizations to help settle disputes may be necessary, but they often favor the interests of business over citizens.”
David Suzuki Quote: “We now have access to so much information that we can find support for any prejudice or opinion.”
David Suzuki Quote: “What about our children and grandchildren and their children and grandchildren? Do we not want them to live healthy and happy lives?”
David Suzuki Quote: “If we have any hope of finding ways for seven billion people to live well on planet with finite resources, we have to learn to use our resources efficiently. Plastic bags are neither efficient nor environmentally friendly.”
David Suzuki Quote: “Each time I visit Japan, I am reminded of how Canadian I am and how little racial connection matters.”
David Suzuki Quote: “Environmentali sm is really about seeing our place in world in a way that humans have always known up until very recently – that we are part of nature-utterly dependent on the natural world for our well being and survival.”
David Suzuki Quote: “Environmentalism isn’t a discipline or specialty. It’s a way of seeing our place in the world. And we need everybody to see the world that way. Don’t think ‘In order to make a difference I have to become an environmentalist.’”
David Suzuki Quote: “Hydraulic fracturing requires massive amounts of water. Disposing of the toxic wastewater, as well as accidental spills, can contaminate drinking water and harm human health.”
David Suzuki Quote: “Some solutions are relatively simple and would provide economic benefits: implementing measures to conserve energy, putting a price on carbon through taxes and cap-and-trade and shifting from fossil fuels to clean and renewable energy sources.”
David Suzuki Quote: “Japan is a model already to the lie that economic growth is the key to our future. If they can really show an alternative to nukes and fossil fuels, then they will be the poster boy for the renewable energy for the future.”
David Suzuki Quote: “If Canada, one of the richest nations in the world, can’t meet Kyoto targets, why should China or India give any considerations for meeting the targets?”
David Suzuki Quote: “We must pay greater attention to keeping our bodies and minds healthy and able to heal. Yet we are making it difficult for our defences to work. We allow things to be sold that should not be called food. Many have no nutritive value and lead to obesity, salt imbalance, and allergies.”
David Suzuki Quote: “As parents, grandparents, uncles and aunts we need to start getting out into nature with the young people in our lives. Families play a key role in getting kids outside.”
David Suzuki Quote: “From year to year, environmental changes are incremental and often barely register in our lives, but from evolutionary or geological perspectives, what is happening is explosive change.”
David Suzuki Quote: “The current economic system is fundamentally flawed and inevitably destructive.”
David Suzuki Quote: “The place where we spend most of our lives moulds our priorities and the way we perceive our surroundings. A human-engineered habitat of asphalt, concrete and glass reinforces our belief that we lie outside of and above nature, immune from uncertainty and the unexpected of the wild.”
David Suzuki Quote: “Humanity is facing a challenge unlike any we’ve ever had to confront. We are in an unprecedented period of change.”
