David Suzuki speaks from the Rio+20.

Why Rio+20 and conferences like it are doomed to fail and what really needs to happen to ensure that humans can inhabit the planet for long term. Frankly I think we are a failed experiment and will go the way of the dinosaurs – but don’t worry about the planet – it will survive.

Mr. Suzuki attended only as a babysitter for his grandson because his view is that nothing could ever come out such conferences that would make a difference and he does not attend them as a rule. His daughter Severn Suzuki addressed the first Rio conference in 1992 at age 12.

the planet will do its thing but probably without us. We are quickly running out of time to change our way of living.

Having just watched “promethea moths” emerge from cocoons on my tulip tree, I feel a sense of pride in knowing that I have done at least one small bit to re-naturalize the earth, by planting the Carolinian trees in my yard.
