A Speech by Buckminster Fuller Entitled,
Buckminster Fuller gives a speech at the AMA entitled, "What Quality of Environment Do We Want?" He begins by speaking of the earth as if it were a spaceship, with the sun being the closest "gas station," the next nearest being 100,000 times as far away. He reviews a few ways of looking at what we do to our environment, speaking of combustion engines, the role of television in development, the terminology of the past (and unlearning the misinformation that goes along with it), and the organization of cities. He winds the speech up with a review of the work of Dr. Benjamin Bloom of Chicago.
