"If the United States is leading the way, it’s in the wrong direction. With less than 5 percent of the world’s population, we produce almost a quarter of its greenhouse-gas emissions. We consume nearly a third of the world’s electricity (mostly from coal) and 43 percent of its gasoline."

             —Paul Schell and Denis Hayes, Seattle Times, December 29, 1999
