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
