(We) have entered a new geological epoch, one of our own making: the Anthropocene. We are altering the great cycles of nature. The climate stability we have enjoyed since the dawn of agriculture can no longer be assumed. The natural resources we rely upon need to be valued in a new way. And the natural resource in shortest supply is time.
Paul Shrivastava, our challenge on Earth Day, and year round.

On doit maintenant déterminer par quoi on remplace le pétrole et, surtout, à quelle vitesse.
