The illusion (Folke)

Humans have a tendency to fall prey to the illusion that their economy is at the very center of the universe, forgetting that the biosphere is what ultimately sustains all systems, both man-made and natural. In this sense, "environmental issues" are not about saving the planet—it will always survive and evolve with new combinations of atom—but about the prosperous development of our own species.
Carl Folke
