"The use of paper, perhaps more than any other single product, reflects the throwaway mentality that evolved during the last century. There is an enormous possibility for reducing paper use simply by replacing facial tissues, paper napkins, disposable diapers, and paper shopping bags with reusable cloth alternatives." –Lester R. Brown, Plan B 4.0: Mobilizing to Save Civilization.
Lester Brown gives the inaugural address for the University of Maryland's Environmental Lecture series. The topic is his new book Full Planet, Empty Plates: The New Geopolitics of Food Scarcity.
