"Cut down the last redwoods for chopsticks, harpoon the last blue whale for sushi, and the additional mouths fed will nourish additional human brains, which will soon invent ways to replace blubber with olestra and pine with plastic. Humanity can survive just fine in a planet-covering crypt of concrete and computers."

--Peter Huber, Hard Green: Saving the Environment From the Environmentalists-A Conservative Manifesto, Basic Books, January 2000.
