“The com­mon enemy of human­ity is man. In search­ing for a new enemy to unite us we came up with the idea that pol­lu­tion, the threat of global warm­ing, water short­ages, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these dan­gers are caused by human inter­ven­tion, and it is only through changed atti­tudes and behav­ior that they can be over­come. The real enemy then is human­ity itself.”   -The Club of Rome, premier environmental think-tank, consultants to the United Nations-
