Gwynne Dyer

After all of these centuries, we have to accept the fact that foreigners are people too, entitled to the same things that we have. The third world has to have more and we have to live with less.

 Quotes
Gwynne Dyer

Human beings are not an all powerful life form that is going to destroy the planet, you know. We shouldn’t give ourselves airs. We’re simply another highly successful species that is fast approaching the point where the usual controls kick in. And the usual environmental controls, I’m afraid, are quite harsh. Mass die-offs are commonplace and extinctions are not unknown. What we need now is a new kind of human being who’s adapted to living in a global culture many billions strong. A global villager who can treat all the planet’s people as neighbours.

 Quotes

We are heading for a world with three billion cars and a permanently brown sky unless we establish global rules limiting every country to a safe and equal level of consumption.

 Quotes
Gwynne Dyer

There is a bomb ticking away under the whole world. We accidentally built it ourselves, out of too many people and too much consumption and too much pressure on the environment.
