The Way I See It #1

"Zeroes are important. A million seconds ago was last week. A billion seconds ago, Richard Nixon resigned the presidency. A trillion seconds ago was 30,000 BC, and early humans were using stone tools. America's national debt is now $7.5 trillion, and it's skyrocketing, even as America's population ages. There will never be a better time to start paying off this crippling debt than today."

-- Denis Hayes Every so often, an author comes along with a thought so powerful, we feel compelled to continue the discussion. Above you find the first quote to appear on Starbucks cups as part of "The Way I See It," accompanied by a Q&A session with the man behind the message, environmental advocate, Denis Hayes.
