The 20th century is remarkable for bloodshed and lives lost through the madness of men. Stalin and Mao created environmental ruin and starved around 40 million. Exploding populations post-World War II caused Paul Ehrlich to write in his book Population Bomb, “The battle to feed all of humanity is over.” Ehrlich warned that only government action to force curbs on population would prevent massive destruction of the environment, and hundreds of millions dead. Unlike Ehrlich, Norman Borlaug did something positive for the world. He developed genetically modified high-yield rice and corn, which ignited the “Green Revolution.” This lead to development of hybrid grains capable of handling varying climates and prevailing diseases and increased crop yields over 700 percent.

Société de Calcul Mathématique SA, (Mathematical Modelling Company, Corp.) -This is the first time in the history of humanity that a civilization – our civilization! – has launched a worldwide crusade: to change the concentration of CO2 in the atmosphere. Previous crusades – nine of them officially, but there have been thousands under other names – have always targeted a neighbor whose religion displeased us, or whose land or resources we coveted. The current crusade has planetary ambitions and is utterly unprecedented. Website: http://www.scmsa.eu/

Patrick Moore, Ph.D. in Ecology, is a founding member of Greenpeace, who turned realist. "I love nature and people are part of nature - all people and all living things. I believe in one human family. All watersheds are connected. Environmentalism must be beyond nationalism, politics and ideology."

He explains how Greenpeace began in the 1970s and what it has become.
