Benjamin Franklin
b. 1-17-1706; Boston, MA
d. 4-17-1790; Philadelphia, PA

Benjamin Franklin, one of the leaders of the American Revolution and a Founding Father, was an author, publisher, journalist, public servant, librarian, statesman/diplomat, scientist/inventor, philanthropist, and abolitionist.

Franklin was also an early environmentalist. In 1739, he and neighbors petitioned the Pennsylvania Assembly “to stop waste dumping and remove tanneries from Philadelphia's commercial district”, citing “foul smell, lower property values, disease and interference with fire fighting”. The tanneries responded that their rights were being violated. Franklin argued for ‘public rights’ and won a symbolic battle but the dumping continued even as groups lead by Franklin tried to regulate waste disposal and water pollution between 1762-1769. Then in 1797, Franklin's will which stipulated a fresh water pipeline for Philadelphia, led to the formation of the Philadelphia Water Commission.

R. Buckminster Fuller
b. 7-12-1895; Massachusetts
d. 7-1-1983

Bucky Fuller was an architect, author, designer, futurist, inventor, poet and visionary.

Fuller was primarily concerned with the question “Does humanity have a chance to survive lastingly and successfully on planet Earth, and if so, how?” Further he wanted to know how an average individual without special monetary means or academic degree, could do to improve humanity's condition that large organizations, governments, or private business could not do.

Buckminster Fuller quotes ~
• “Our little Spaceship Earth is only eight thousand miles in diameter, which is almost a negligible dimension in the great vastness of space. . . . Spaceship Earth was so extraordinarily well invented and designed that to our knowledge humans have been on board it for two million years not even knowing that they were on board a ship.”
• “I live on Earth at present, and I don't know what I am. I know that I am not a category. I am not a thing — a noun. I seem to be a verb, an evolutionary process — an integral function of the universe.”
• “Pollution is nothing but resources we're not harvesting. We allow them to disperse because we've been ignorant of their value.”
• “Nature is trying very hard to make us succeed, but nature does not depend on us. We are not the only experiment.”
• “The opposite of nature is impossible.”
• “The Universe consists of non-simultaneously apprehended events.”
• “Dare to be naïve.”
