James Cameron on mankind...

Long quote here that's fresh out of the oven but I think it sums up nicely how we're all f**king and messing up this world that we live in.

"I think there's this long wonderful history of the human race written in blood going back as far as we can remember... where we have this tendency to just take what we want without asking.

That's how we treat the natural world as well - there's a sense of entitlement. We're here, we're big, we've got the guns, we've got the technology, we've got the brains. We are therefore entitled to every damn thing on this planet.

And that's not how it works - and we're going to find out the hard way if we don't wise up and start seeking a life that's in balance with the natural world [and] the natural cycles of life on Earth."
