#Quote
1 If you sat kids down on day one at school and said, 'Guys, we've fucked up. We've burnt and consumed almost everything, and your future is really grim unless you pay attention, you learn what we've got to tell you, and you come out of this and you start doing something', kids would be getting 'A's. Kids would be studying because the future and their lives would depend on it.
2 [on dealing with environmental decline] What we really need is education, because in every other crisis we've ever faced, once people knew the real situation they took the right moral action. This is what has to happen now, and I do believe it's possible. But it will be an act of revolution, because we don't just have to change the world, we have to change the way we think.
3 I thought I had the dream life. I could take pictures of fish and travel the world. It was only when I saw what was happening to the sharks that I realized I couldn't just sit back and not care. At a certain point you have to take action.
