How can nurses contribute to solving the biggest threat to health: the degradation and loss of our ecosystem / natural environment?
"I used to think the top environmental problems were biodiversity loss, ecosystem collapse and climate change. I thought that with 30 years of good science we could address those problems.
But I was wrong.
The top environmental problems are selfishness, greed and apathy... to deal with those we need a spiritual and cultural transformation, and we scientists don't know how to do that."
~ James Gustave “Gus” Speth, former dean of the Yale School of Forestry and Environmental Studies, founder and president of the World Resources Institute, and co-founder of the Natural Resources Defense Council
