'Most of the things we have been told to do might make us feel better - don't use plasticity shopping bags, turn off your lights, insulate the house, etc - but they won't make any difference. Global warming has passed the tipping point, and catastrophe is unstoppable.'

James Lovelock,
Inventor of the Gaia Hypothesis.

'At the onset of the twenty-first century, humanity stands on the verge of the most transforming and the most thrilling period in its history. It will be an era in which the very nature of what it means to be human will be both enriched and challenged, as our species breaks the shackles of its genetic legacy and achieves inconceivable heights of intelligence, material progress, and longevity.'

Ray Kurzweil,
Technological Futurist.
