“We must understand that fossil-fuel energy must be replaced not just by clean energy but also by less energy.”

“If we want to stop the impoverishment of land and people we ourselves must be prepared to become poorer.”

These are but two of the thought-provoking comments by Wendell Berry, Kentucky farmer-author, as one of the keynote speakers at an environmental rally last week in Louisville, Kentucky.  Peter Smith, a reporter for the Louisville Courier-Journal, reported on the event.  To learn more about the rally and the insights shared by Berry, click on the following link:  Wendell Berry: No technological fix to climate change.
