"The only emergency is the lack of emergency"

Thanks to the enowning blog I am reminded of this phrase, which I wish I'd remembered when I told the Madison crew about gigatons of carbon, Earth f***ing, etc:

"When Martin Heidegger, one of the architects of hermeneutics, pointed out decades ago how the 'only emergency is the lack of emergency', he was referring to these sort of alterations: The emergency is when they don't occur."
