“We stand now where two roads diverge. But unlike the roads in Robert Frost‘s familiar poem, they are not equally fair.  The road we have long been travelling is deceptively easy, a smooth superhighway on which we progress with great speed, but at its end lies disaster.  The other fork of the road — the one less travelled by — offers our last, our only chance to reach a destination that assures the preservation of the earth.”  – Rachel Carson, Silent Spring

And still we continue along the smooth superhighway…putting the wondrous, interconnected web of life on our planet in jeopardy with our avarice and selfishness.
