Masanobu Fukuoka Quote on Returning To Nature

"I believe that even 'returning-to-nature' and anti-pollution activities, no matter how commendable, are not moving toward a genuine solution if they are carried out solely in reaction to the over development of the present age."
Masanobu Fukuoka "The One-Straw Revolution"

I think a perfect example of this is Richard Branson's $25 million prize for an invention that combats global warming. The "nothing to see here, please carry on with your destructive tendencies" approach to solving environmental issues is keeping us from seeing the real damage we are making.
