Scenes like these should be a wake up call for humanity but few will change anything about their lives to help the situation. We like our produce available year-round, beef on demand, electricity when we flip the switch. It's too inconvenient to walk or ride a bike anywhere so we keep driving the gas guzzling SUVs.
Struggling economies in 3rd world countries have little choice to but to raze the local natural resources to pay for loans from International banks. There is a madness in the world that has made man the center of the universe, we want what we want and damn the consequences. If we had to live with those consequences things would change but we just move on and find a spot less spoiled, set up house and ruin another place before we move on.
No so long ago most people in the US were farmers. They owned the land and they cared for it since it was passed down to them and they in turn would pass it down to their children. As the rich get richer and the poor worse off fewer and fewer are actually able to own and land or a house and we're fast becoming a Nation of renters which is only speeding up the cycle of wealth transfer. The wealthy can move on but for most the choice is no longer there. At some point not far down the road even Americans will be sifting through landfills looking for anything to help them get by.
The only sane choice imo is a gradual reduction in population. The Earth is not infinite and we are bumping on the corners of survivability right now.

Does my 2001 gas guzzling SUV driven 4 miles to and from work, 5 days a week cause more harm than the aircraft in the sky? AIRFORCE 1 AND 2? All the debris floating from Japan to out Pacific Coast beaches? Gross polluting classic cars ? Trains....or China's industrial complex?
