“We stand now where two roads diverge.
But unlike the roads in Robert Frost’s familiar poem,
they are not equally fair.
The road we have long been traveling is deceptively easy,
a smooth superhighway on which we progress with great speed,
but at its end lies disaster.
The other fork of the road /
the one less traveled by /
offers our last, our only chance
to reach a destination that assures
the preservation of the earth.”
– Rachel Carson
