“Most of our populace and all our leaders are participating in a mass hallucinatory fantasy
in which the megatons of waste we dump in our rivers and bays are not poisoning the water,
the hydrocarbons we pump into the air are not changing the climate,
overfishing is not depleting the oceans, fossil fuels will never run out,
wars that kill masses of civilians are the appropriate way to keep our hands on what’s left,
we are not desperately overdrawn at the environmental bank and, really, the kids are all right.”
~Barbara Kingsolver, “A Good Farmer"
