We are chaos and order. Our ways will destroy the planet if we keep delaying actions against the man-made global warming.

Here the context from: American University Speech June 10, 1963

"First: Examine our attitude towards peace itself. Too many of us think it is impossible. Too many think it is unreal. But that is a dangerous, defeatist belief. It leads to the conclusion that war is inevitable -- that mankind is doomed -- that we are gripped by forces we cannot control.

We need not accept that view. Our problems are man-made. Therefore, they can be solved by man. And man can be as big as he wants. No problem of human destiny is beyond human beings. Man's reason and spirit have often solved the seemingly unsolvable -- and we believe they can do it again.

I am not referring to the absolute, infinite concepts of universal peace and goodwill of which some fantasies and fanatics dream. I do not deny the value of hopes and dreams but we merely invite discouragement and incredulity by making that our only and immediate goal.

Let us focus instead on a more practical, more attainable peace -- based not on a sudden revolution in human nature but on a gradual evolution in human institutions -- on a series of concrete actions and effective agreement which are in the interests of all concerned."

Our man-made problems start with talking out of both sides of the same mouth and listening with one ear closer to the wrong side.

Those students who heard the speech are now in their 70's and looking back at how America failed to listen. How "a more practical, more attainable peace" has become practically less attainable.
