No pain-no gain

There is no shortage of will to destroy the human and natural environment but there does appear to be a shortage of unified will to protect it. I wonder if the biggest threat to the environment is not human greed but human apathy.

3 million unemployed by Christmas, 16% fall in house prices in 12 months, state of emergency interest rates, projected government borrowing of £118 billion next year, 45,000 already re-possessed and this is just the beginning.

A fundamental shift in perspective towards a more sustainable environmental future can only occur after the adverse effects of unsustainable philosophy are felt by the majority of individuals within a society.

The worse this economic crisis gets- the more chance there is for alternative and minority thinkers to gain ground.
