No culture ever honoured the environment but disgraced its people and conversely, no government can say it cares for its citizens while allowing the environment to be trashed. Dr Paul Farmer

 

What is abundantly clear is that all life-from bacterium to elephants-share common characteristics at the level of molecules. There is common thread that runs thought the whole of biological existence…That vital spark from inanimate matter to animate life happened once and once only, and all living existence depends on that moment. We are all the one tribe with bacteria that live in hot springs, parasitic barnacles, vampire bats and cauliflowers.  We all share a common ancestor. Richard Fortey – Life: A Natural History of the First Four Billion Years of Life on Earth.
