#1. For an entire year he saved all of his trash. Except for what he actually ate, everything was sorted into bins. At year's end, his living room and kitchen were filled with nearly a hundred cubic feet of stuff. Some was compostable. But the vast majority was leftover food packaging. Derfel's experimentation shows what happens when someone intentionally holds onto everything. The point of his exercise was to raise consciousness about the environmental impact of one individual's consumer waste. At another level, it demonstrates that we readily discard most of what passes though daily life as useless trash. - Author: Richard J. Borden
Environmental Impact quotes by Richard J. Borden
#2. What's it like to envision the ten-thousand-year environmental impact of tossing a plastic bottle into the trash bin, all in the single second it takes to actually toss it? Or the ten-thousand-year history of the fossil fuel being burned to drive to work or iron a shirt? It may be environmentally progressive, but it's not altogether pleasant. - Author: Douglas Rushkoff
Environmental Impact quotes by Douglas Rushkoff
#3. I don't believe vegans (or vegetarians) who still get their (packaged, preservative/chemical-ridden) food from industrial food systems have any righteous ground to stand on, nor do I think a deep look at the sentient life of plants or the true environmental impact of agriculture permits them any comfortable distance from cruelty. Everything in this world eats something else to survive, and that something else, whether running on blood or chlorophyll, would always rather continue to live rather than become sustenance for another. No animal wants to be penned up and milked, or caged and harvested, and you've never seen plants growing in regimented lines of their own accord. - Author: Brian Awehali
Environmental Impact quotes by Brian Awehali
#4. and produce as a result of their inundation with industrial herbicides and pesticides which, of course, make their way, again, into the Russian River. Then into the Pacific Ocean. And ultimately, into all the fish in your local supermarket. What is said about the environmental impact of vineyards in Sonoma County? Fucking nothing. It is our sacred cow." Darren raised his shot glass again, "Long live the sacred cow." Colin - Author: Rob Loughran
Environmental Impact quotes by Rob Loughran
#5. Single-purposism, as we have seen, tends to create projects that harm the environment. Instead, we should design projects with as favourable an environmental impact as possible. This is the objective of environmental impact design. - Author: Tom Turner
Environmental Impact quotes by Tom Turner
#6. Although population and consumption are societal issues, technology is the business of business. If economic activity must increase tenfold over what it is today to support a population nearly double its current size, then technology will have to reduce its impact twenty-fold merely to keep the planet at its current levels of environmental impact. For example, to stabilize the climate we may have to reduce real carbon emissions by as much as 80 percent, while simultaneously growing the world economy by an order of magnitude. - Author: Stuart L. Hart
Environmental Impact quotes by Stuart L. Hart
#7. Businesses typically look at issues like price, quality, time of delivery. They don't often think about social and environmental impact because they're focused on their financial bottom line. - Author: Jerry Greenfield
Environmental Impact quotes by Jerry Greenfield
#8. Superfluous focus on accounting and other procedural details is preventing U.S. industry from competing with rough-and-ready rivals in Asia that can build thousands of factories and skyscrapers while the United States dithers with environmental-impact litigation, re-computation, and backup of accounting reports. - Author: George Gilder
Environmental Impact quotes by George Gilder
#9. Letting the perfect be the enemy of the good is one of the reasons we have a coal-dependent infrastructure, with the resulting environmental impact that all of us can see. I suspect environmentalists, through their opposition of nuclear power, have caused more coal plants to be built than anybody. And those coal plants have emitted more radioactive material from the coal than any nuclear accident would have. - Author: Vinod Khosla
Environmental Impact quotes by Vinod Khosla
#10. Moreover, the practical recommendations deduced from ecological principles threaten the vested interests of commerce; it is hardly surprising that the financial and political power created by these investments should be used sometimes to suppress environmental impact studies. - Author: Garrett Hardin
Environmental Impact quotes by Garrett Hardin
#11. This is absolutely bizarre that we continue to subsidize highways beyond the gasoline tax, airlines, and we don't subsidize, we don't want to subsidize a national rail system that has environmental impact. - Author: Joe Biden
Environmental Impact quotes by Joe Biden
#12. I think the environmental impact of this disaster is likely to have been very, very modest. - Author: Tony Hayward
Environmental Impact quotes by Tony Hayward

Environmental Impact quotes by Ma Jun
#14. In terms of environmental impact, Samasource jobs are very green. Our product is human intelligence, and it's transported through the Internet rather than via carbon-intensive trucking, shipping, and warehousing. - Author: Leila Janah
Environmental Impact quotes by Leila Janah
#15. If people are prepared to eat locally and seasonally, then they probably do pretty well in terms of environmental impact. - Author: Peter Singer
Environmental Impact quotes by Peter Singer
#16. If the federal government had been around when the Creator was putting His hand to this state, Indiana wouldn't be here. It'd still be waiting for an environmental impact statement. - Author: Ronald Reagan
Environmental Impact quotes by Ronald Reagan
#17. In popular culture, the term "butterfly effect" is almost always misused. It has become synonymous with "leverage" - the idea of a small thing that has a big impact, with the implication that, like a lever, it can be manipulated to a desired end. This misses the point of Lorenz's insight. The reality is that small things in a complex system may have no effect or a massive one, and it is virtually impossible to know which will turn out to be the case. - Author: Stanley McChrystal
Environmental Impact quotes by Stanley McChrystal

If they cannot reach you for whatever reason, then you have not done your homework, because you are supposed to have a strategy to reach them before they can even look for you! Otherwise someone else will meet them along the way as they look for you. - Author: Archibald Marwizi
Environmental Impact quotes by Archibald Marwizi
#19. An influx of new research explores how our brains do continue to change and how our very thoughts impact those changes. This natural tendency of our brains to rewire is called neuroplasticity, which can be influenced by both external and internal factors. - Author: Tina Hallis
Environmental Impact quotes by Tina Hallis
#20. I grew up in the country, which is probably why I'm so attached to the land. I love it. I love the lay of the land. I love walking the land. And I love knowing that it's my land. - Author: Oprah Winfrey
Environmental Impact quotes by Oprah Winfrey
#21. I'm a parent. I have kids, and what's happening with our waters, and our oceans, and what's happening with deforestation, and all these things that human beings are having negative impacts on at this time, are concerning to me. I wanted to do whatever I could to be a part of the solution and not just be a part of the problem. - Author: Don Cheadle
Environmental Impact quotes by Don Cheadle
#22. There's always a part of your nation's history that you haven't been told that ... has a powerful impact on how you yourself may behave and may believe. - Author: Barbara Kingsolver
Environmental Impact quotes by Barbara Kingsolver

Environmental Impact quotes by Jackie Robinson
#25. It's funny that I got to do 'On the Road' because the thing that had the biggest impact on me growing up was reading books. I was very inspired by the book and this spirit of Dean Moriarty and how envious we all are of somebody who can be that carefree. - Author: Garrett Hedlund
Environmental Impact quotes by Garrett Hedlund
#26. Why is the Keystone Pipeline the very first, #1 item on the Republicans' agenda? We know that this pipeline runs terrible environmental risks and it just won't do much for the American people. So why is this bill so urgent? Money and power. - Author: Elizabeth Warren
Environmental Impact quotes by Elizabeth Warren

Environmental Impact quotes by Linda Fisher Thornton

Environmental Impact quotes by Ann Coulter

Environmental Impact quotes by Russell E. Train
#32. Destruction of privacy via surveillance programs engineered by Great Powers widens the existing power imbalance between the ruling elite and everyone else. Its impact on global south will be colossal. - Author: Arzak Khan
Environmental Impact quotes by Arzak Khan
#33. The industrial civilisation is based on the consumption of energy resources that are inherently limited in quantity and that are about to become scarce. When they do, competition for what remains will trigger dramatic economic and geopolitical events; in the end, it may be impossible for even a single nation to sustain industrialism as we have know it in the twentieth century. - Author: Richard Heinberg
Environmental Impact quotes by Richard Heinberg

Environmental Impact quotes by Jimmy Rollins
#36. There is a deep gap between our thinking about statistics and our thinking about individual cases. Statistical results with a causal interpretation have a stronger effect on our thinking than noncausal information. But even compelling causal statistics will not change long-held beliefs or beliefs rooted in personal experience. On the other hand, surprising individual cases have a powerful impact and are a more effective tool for teaching psychology because the incongruity must be resolved and embedded in a causal story. - Author: Daniel Kahneman
Environmental Impact quotes by Daniel Kahneman
#37. This is why militarism is a feminist issue, why rape is an environmental issue, why environmental destruction is a peace issue. We will never dismantle misogyny as long as domination is eroticized. We will also never stop racism. Nor will we mount an effective resistance to fascism, which is the eroticization of domination and subordination–fascism is in essence a cult of masculinity. Those are all huge spin-outs from the same beginning. The result is torture, rape, genocide, and biocide. - Author: Lierre Keith
Environmental Impact quotes by Lierre Keith
#38. Praxeology is a theoretical and systematic, not a historical, science. Its scope is human action as such, irrespective of all environmental, accidental, and individual circumstances of the concrete acts. Its cognition is purely formal and general without reference to the material content and the particular features of the actual case. It aims at knowledge valid for all instances in which the conditions exactly correspond to those implied in its assumptions and inferences. Its statements and propositions are not derived from experience. They are, like those of logic and mathematics, a priori. They are not subject to verification or falsification on the ground of experience and facts. - Author: Ludwig Von Mises
Environmental Impact quotes by Ludwig Von Mises
#39. Moral codes adjust themselves to environmental conditions. - Author: Will Durant
Environmental Impact quotes by Will Durant
#40. Nobody is rewarded for occupying a position, but for becoming effective in the position occupied. If you occupy a position, you must have the weight of influence in order to matter! - Author: Israelmore Ayivor
Environmental Impact quotes by Israelmore Ayivor

Environmental Impact quotes by Juliana Hatfield
#42. On first hearing that little voice – as fine and friable, I felt, as cotton thread, the impact on my soul was that of the highest magnitude of earthquake, those that occur every hundred years, say, or every thousand. The old shell I called myself cracked and was swallowed by a sudden crevasse, and just as suddenly was lost in the commotion. - Author: Antonella Gambotto-Burke
Environmental Impact quotes by Antonella Gambotto-Burke
#43. Many have argued with me that ambition is not the problem. Women are not less ambitious than men, they insist, but more enlightened with different and more meaningful goals. I do not dismiss or dispute this argument. There is far more to life than climbing a career ladder, including raising children, seeking personal fulfillment, contributing to society, and improving the lives of others. And there are many people who are deeply committed to their jobs but do not - and should not have to - aspire to run their organizations. Leadership roles are not the only way to have profound impact. - Author: Sheryl Sandberg
Environmental Impact quotes by Sheryl Sandberg
#44. I tell my environmental friends that they have won. Every issue we look at from an energy perspective is now also looked at from an environmental perspective. - Author: Joe Barton
Environmental Impact quotes by Joe Barton
#45. Are oysters aphrodisiacs?

For men, the smell of baked cinnamon buns had such a powerful impact on libido that it trumped the scents of a slew of various perfumes combined. Men were also strongly aroused by the scent of pumpkin pie, lavender, doughnuts, cheese pizza, buttered popcorn, vanilla and strawberries. The foods and smells that got women going more than anything else were licorice, banana nut bread, cucumbers, and candy. - Author: Anahad O'Connor
Environmental Impact quotes by Anahad O'Connor
#46. Another thing I like about German cities - and it's an advantage which they haven't sufficiently exploited yet - is that they are pioneers when it comes to environmental technologies. And green solutions are becoming more and more important. - Author: Charles Landry
Environmental Impact quotes by Charles Landry
#47. Hopelessly uneconomic on any substantial scale, since it requires a conventional power back-up for when the wind stops blowing, forests of wind turbines are rightly regarded in most countries as an environmental monstrosity. - Author: Nigel Lawson
Environmental Impact quotes by Nigel Lawson
