#1. I look at it this way ... For centuries now, man has done everything he can to destroy, defile, and interfere with nature: clear-cutting forests, strip-mining mountains, poisoning the atmosphere, over-fishing the oceans, polluting the rivers and lakes, destroying wetlands and aquifers ... so when nature strikes back, and smacks him on the head and kicks him in the nuts, I enjoy that. I have absolutely no sympathy for human beings whatsoever. None. And no matter what kind of problem humans are facing, whether it's natural or man-made, I always hope it gets worse. - Author: George Carlin
Aquifers quotes by George Carlin
#2. The aquifer [is] the water table people need to keep secure. Nature has this incredible system of water purification under the ground. Ground water is much better to drink than surface water because it filters out the bacteria that can cause all sorts of problems. - Author: Josh Fox
Aquifers quotes by Josh Fox
#3. What people don't understand is like when water gets polluted, it's an entire aquifer. There's a whole fascinating world that exists underneath our feet that we don't see, therefore we don't relate. - Author: Erin Brockovich
Aquifers quotes by Erin Brockovich
#4. What surer sign is there that the creative aquifers are dry than a writer creating a writer-character? - Author: David Mitchell
Aquifers quotes by David Mitchell
#5. I fracked over 3,000 wells in my life and never had a problem with an aquifer. - Author: T. Boone Pickens
Aquifers quotes by T. Boone Pickens
#6. Thanks to the centrifugal pump, places like Nebraska, Kansas, Oklahoma, and Texas had thrown on the garments of fertility for a century, pretending to greenery and growth as they mined glacial water from ten-thousand-year-old aquifers. They'd played dress-up-in-green and pretended it could last forever. They'd pumped up the Ice Age and spread it across the land, and for a while they'd turned their dry lands lush. Cotton, wheat, corn, soybeans
vast green acreages, all because someone could get a pump going. Those places had dreamed of being different from what they were. They'd had aspirations. And then the water ran out, and they fell back, realizing too late that their prosperity was borrowed, and there would be no more coming. - Author: Paolo Bacigalupi
Aquifers quotes by Paolo Bacigalupi
#7. Today, our incentives aren't set up well - you can make a lot of money burning fossil fuels, digging up wetlands, pumping fossil water out of aquifers that will take 10,000 years to recharge, overfishing species in international waters that are close to collapse, and so on. - Author: Ramez Naam
Aquifers quotes by Ramez Naam
#8. There have been over a million wells hydraulically fractured in the history of the industry, and there is not one, not one, reported case of a freshwater aquifer having ever been contaminated from hydraulic fracturing. Not one. - Author: Rex W. Tillerson
Aquifers quotes by Rex W. Tillerson
#9. [T]he light of oneness is available to all of us, present in hidden aquifers where life's waters continue to flow, waiting in a living silence for us to notice. - Author: Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee
Aquifers quotes by Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee
#10. Jesus walked on water, so maybe he makes aquifers, too. - Author: Paolo Bacigalupi
Aquifers quotes by Paolo Bacigalupi
#11. From the industry's point of view, the problem is not that coal companies blast the top off mountains, turning the area into a moonscape and polluting the air and releasing toxic chemical into what's left of the local streams and aquifers. It's that the people who live near the mines are too cozy with their cousins. - Author: Jeff Goodell
Aquifers quotes by Jeff Goodell
#12. Our early 21st century civilization is in trouble. We need not go beyond the world food economy to see this. Over the last few decades we have created a food production bubble-one based on environmental trends that cannot be sustained, including overpumping aquifers, overplowing land, and overloading the atmosphere with carbon dioxide. - Author: Lester R. Brown
Aquifers quotes by Lester R. Brown
#13. The effect of climate change is not simply to reduce rain during the summer months, but also to increase the number of torrential storms. When the rain falls that hard and fast, it cannot sink into the ground and go down to the aquifers. - Author: Nick Davies
Aquifers quotes by Nick Davies
#14. It takes 1,000 tons of water to produce 1 ton of grain. As water becomes scarce and countries are forced to divert irrigation water to cities and industry, they will import more grain. As they do so, water scarcity will be transmitted across national borders via the grain trade. Aquifer depletion is a largely invisible threat, but that does not make it any less real. - Author: Lester R. Brown
Aquifers quotes by Lester R. Brown
#15. No successes we might have are guaranteed to last as long as industrial civilization stands. Conversely, most of our losses are effectively permanent. Extinct species cannot be resurrected. Overdrawn aquifers or clear-cut forests will not return to their original states on timescales meaningful to humans. The destruction of land-based cultures, and the deliberate impoverishment of much of humanity, results in major loss and long-­term social trauma. With sufficient action, it's possible to solve many of the problems we face, but if that action doesn't materialize in time, the effects are irreversible. - Author: Aric McBay
