The Truth About The Environment


The current state of apathy and indecision about issues of environmental emergency is stupid, to say the least. If we just understood basic arithmetic and the concept of “exponential growth against finite sources” we would be alarmed out of our wits seeing what is going on today. A socio-economic system that relies in great part on the ignorance of its constituents for its success cannot possibly survive. If we think we can continue living the way we do, with the mismanagement of resources, unbridled population growth and industrial expansion with its disproportionate amount of waste and pollution, and still pretend to secure a bright, peaceful future for ourselves and our children, we are deluded. I also think that too many of us have been watching too many science fiction movies. I have more bad news for everybody: there is no USS Enterprise parked somewhere and as far a I know, there are no hospitable galaxies out there with life-sustaining, earth-like planets where we can move to if things got really nasty down here. Either we get our act together and stop crapping where we eat and quit stepping on our dicks like incorrigible morons we are going to find ourselves is some deep doodoo. I hope you got the picture, if not, next is a lecture by Dr Albert Bartlett that may enlighten you.

There is also another aspect to our relationship to the earth that I would like to approach. One more reason there is such widespread disregard for matters of environmental conservancy is the misconception that the planet is a “thing” and not an organism, which it really is. Newton was wrong: the universe is not a machine, divine clock that God wound up to tick til the end of eternity, but it is an organism, and so is our planet. It breaths and feeds, it grows and evolves, it learns and adapts, it is versatile but sometimes also stubborn, it is intelligent and sophisticated, it suffers crises and disasters, it creates and acquires habits that are eventually replaced with new behaviors with the need arises. When we realize that the earth is just like us, then we can empathize and transfer our own human feelings (purity, cleanliness, beauty etc..) to it as if it were another human being. Unfortunately, empathy is not something that humans can  buy fluoxetine online, generic prozac price , prozac price philippines. learn just by hearing about it. The callous mental circuitry burned in us by two hundred years of staunch commitment to the consumeristic rat-race, is etched too deep for us to easily override its inurements.
