Quotes

While many groups are currently working independently on components of a "regenerative" economy, Massie believes that "too often their efforts remain fragmented and outside the mainstream of public discourse. Out of these hundreds of efforts a movement is emerging, but we must pull together to build the power necessary to take on the existing system and usher in an alternative."
"A critical factor for improving the environmental performance of production agriculture is to get the individuals managing the land, the farmers themselves, to see that environmental stewardship enhances profitability and is crucial to the long term viability of modern agriculture" said Paul Helgeson, Sustainability Manager at GNP Company , a Minnesota-based poultry company
...Rather than believing action on climate change is a necessary evil, these companies argue that "[t]ackling climate change is one of America's greatest economic opportunities of the 21st century."
...and will help, not hinder, the U S economy," said  Mindy Lubber, president of Ceres, which helped organize the company and investor letters. "Data shows that the electric power industry is already on a path toward a low carbon future, and this standard will accelerate this shift at the pace required by science."
