Warum haben wir Sause entwickelt? Wir möchten einen Beitrag leisten. Eine der eindrücklichsten Texte hierzu haben wir bei Stephen Emmott in "10 Billion" gefunden, der die Situation unglaublich auf den Punkt bringt:
"Let's look at it like this. If we discovered tomorrow that there was an asteroid on a collision course with Earth, and - because physics is a fairly simple science - we were able to calculate that it was going to hit Earth on 3 June 2072, and we knew that its impact was going to wipe out 70 per cent of all life on Earth, governments worldwide would marshal the entire planet into unprecedented action.
Every scientist, engineer, university and business would be enlisted: half to find a way of stopping it, the other half to find a way for our species to survive and rebuild if the first option proved unsuccessful.
We are in almost precisely that situation now, except that there isn't a specific date and there isn't an asteroid.
The problem is us."
