“Our house is on fire and we are looking elsewhere (…) the French must change their way of life” (Extract from Jacques Chirac's speech in September 2002 at the second Earth Summit in Johannesburg). Doesn't the current environmental crisis worry you? Climatic disturbances and the greenhouse effect, air and water pollution, oil spills, contaminated soils, mad cow disease, disappearance of numerous plant and animal species, uncontrolled dissemination of artificial transgenic constructions. The originality of the human species in relation to others is no longer its intelligence as we have long believed, it is its capacity to destroy in full consciousness its own living environment. What world do you want to leave for your children? Each of us is responsible for the nuisances it creates and which will affect generations to come.
