"We cannot cheat on DNA. We cannot get around photosynthesis. We cannot say 'I am not going to give a damn about phytoplankton'. All these tiny mechanisms provide the preconditions of our planetary life. To say we do not care is to say in the most literal sense that we choose death."
- Dame Barbara Ward (English journalist, economist, and conservationist; b. 1914 - d. 1981)
