What’s next? a tin foil helmet for every environut? It seems like they want to put a dunce cap on the world rather than bother doing it invididually. Environmentalists are funny sometimes. I still laugh every time I heard “climate change” because global warming has too much evidence against it, so instead of warming, now ALL weather is proof humans are bad good fear mongering.

Rather appropriate as that could well describe conditions here on Earth in the near future. Recent developments leave me feeling ambivalent. Consumer driven economies have been showing signs of slowing down over the past year. Demand for fossil fuels, metals and other commodities has declined, unfortunately because of an economic catastrophe. While good for the environment, this calamity could lead Nations to desperate actions. Case in point, the rise of fascism in Europe in the 1930s during the Great Depression which lead to World War II. Conservation and the sustainable use of resources are the immediate solutions as future technologies are uncertain. We in the industrialized nations must learn to live with much less. We must quickly change the way we eat; produce goods; use energy, water and land. At the same time the great challenge is to find ways to bring prosperity to all of humanity. In short,to lift up our brothers and sisters around the world. If we do not succeed at this task, how will we live in peace and sustain ourselves.
