 “For technological breakthroughs, legislative reforms, and paper covenants about environmental welfare to take effect, or even to be generated in the first place, requires a climate of transformed environmental values, perception, and will.

At once part, cause, effect, example . . . what is happening there translates to what takes place here, always here, wherever one is and wherever one looks, closest to home."
