Slavoj Zizek quote: "This readiness to assume the guilt for the threats to our environment is deceptively reassuring: We like to be guilty since, if we are guilty, it all depends on us. We pull the strings of catastrophe, so we can also save ourselves simply by changing our lives. What is really hard for us (at least in the West) to accept is that we are reduced to the role of a passive observer who sits and watches what our fate will be. To avoid this impotence, we engage in frantic, obsessive activities. We recycle old paper, we buy organic food, we install long-lasting light bulbs - whatever - just so we can be sure that we are doing something. We make our individual contribution like the soccer fan who supports his team in front of a TV screen at home, shouting and jumping from his seat, in the belief that this will somehow influence the game's outcome." _________________________________

Edward Burtynsky quote: "It's very easy to get judgmental. You know: corporations, you're bad; environmentalists, you're good. It has that polarizing effect. And then nobody respects either. What I want to say to corporations is: A dead planet is bad for business. Your business model falls apart when everybody is dying. And from the environmentalist point of view: How do we go about feeding and clothing and housing seven billion people and try to keep all that in check? We have no choice but to engage in technological innovations."

Stephen Hawking quote: "One can see from space how the human race has changed the Earth. Nearly all of the available land has been cleared of forest and is now used for agriculture or urban development. The polar ice caps are shrinking and the desert areas are increasing. At night, the Earth is no longer dark, but large areas are lit up. All of this is evidence that human exploitation of the planet is reaching a critical limit. But human demands and expectations are ever-increasing. We cannot continue to pollute the atmosphere, poison the ocean and exhaust the land. There isn't any more available."
Oren Lyons quote: "What if we choose to eradicate ourselves from this Earth, by whatever means? The Earth goes nowhere. And in time, it will regenerate, and all the lakes will be pristine. The rivers, the waters, the mountains, everything will be green again. It'll be peaceful. There may not be people, but the Earth will regenerate. And you know why? - Because the Earth has all the time in the world and we don't. So I think that's where we're at, right now."
James Inhofe: "Could it be that man-made global warming is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people?"

Iain Stewart quote: "What is truly scary about climate change is not any of the specific scenarios of rising seas or melting ice, but the sense that our planet's climate exists on a knife-edge balance and we really don't understand what pushes us over the edge, which makes our great chemistry experiment with the world's oceans and atmosphere all the more near-sighted."

WHO (World Health Organisation) | Climate Change and Health
* Climate change affects the social and environmental determinants of health - clean air, safe drinking water, sufficient food and secure shelter. *Between 2030 and 2050, climate change is expected to cause approximately 250 000 additional deaths per year, from malnutrition, malaria, diarrhoea and heat stress. *The direct damage costs to health (i.e. excluding costs in health-determining sectors such as agriculture and water and sanitation), is estimated to be between US$ 2-4 billion/year by 2030. *Areas with weak health infrastructure - mostly in developing countries - will be the least able to cope without assistance to prepare and respond. *Reducing emissions of greenhouse gases through better transport, food and energy-use choices can result in improved health, particularly through reduced air pollution. ____________

25 MARCH 2014 | GENEVA - In new estimates released today, WHO reports that in 2012 around 7 million people died - one in eight of total global deaths - as a result of air pollution exposure. This finding more than doubles previous estimates and confirms that air pollution is now the world's largest single environmental risk.

Pedram Shojai quotes from official site:
Progress At Any Cost Has Cost Us Plenty
"There's a concept in economics where things that don't fall onto your balance sheet are called 'externalities'. For instance, a coal company makes a ton of money but the environmental impact: cleanup costs, mercury in the oceans, smog, deforestation, and all the illness that comes from this somehow 'isn't their problem'. Society is left to deal with these externalities. Taxpayers, non-profits, fish, and wildlife all pay for their profits. Uncool."
About the Film
