Jay: "all Greg ever says in his songs is 'we are going to die -it won't be tomorrow but it'll be pretty fucking soon, so enjoy your life' ". Greg: "I am a happy guy. That is all that I really worry about. I have a very clear idea in my head about what's gonna happen to the human species just as I have a very clear picture what's gonna happen to the birds we hear twittering as well. Just because I think extinction is inevitable though doesn't mean that I can't live a perfectly happy life and share some of my happiness with other people and hope they share a happy life as well. So if you can be happy I think hope is an irrelevant issue. Just be happy with what you've got and you don't worry about tomorrow". Hetson: "I think things are going to get a lot worse before they get better. I am doing my best personally to be an optimist environmentally, but I don't think the mass of the world in general or the countries are doing what they should do. They are thinking about their own interest rather than the interest of the whole planet". Jay: "if everything goes the way it's been going for the past 25 years, basically all that will be left are maybe some tribes that live in Australia or something. Everybody in the big cities will eventually flee to the countryside and they will do the same that they are doing to the big cities to the country so basically there will be no place left to inhabit".
