‘Even more remote is the Great Bear Rainforest [in BC],… home to the rare spirit bear…. Chief Marilyn Slett … is well aware of the forest’s importance: ‘Our leaders understand our well-being is connected to the well-being of our lands and waters.’ The Hidden Life Of Trees, 234.

David Suzuki writes: ‘The benefits of increased cycling go beyond reducing pollution and greenhouse gas emissions. Riding a bike is good for your physical and mental health….You can also save a lot of money on fuel, parking, maintenance, insurance, and purchase. Costs to society–and taxpayers–are also lower. Bikes are easier than cars on infrastructure such as roads, help reduce health care costs, and can alleviate poverty’.

‘When the logs in the fireplace crackle merrily, the corpse of a beech or oak is going up in flames…. [Trees are] expressly felled (that is to say, killed) for our purposes…. We use living things for our purposes. Does that make our behaviour reprehensible? Not necessarily. After all, we are also part of Nature…. We can survive only with the help of organic substances of other creatures….. The real question is whether we help ourselves to only what we need from the forest ecosystem, and–analogous to our treatment of animals–whether we spare the trees any unnecessary suffering.’ The Hidden Life Of Trees, 242.

watched south pacific (strange islands) and the agenda (a south asian bazaar in canada).
