Magic, I sure would like to know who those "many" are, believing " thousands of years of resouces locked up in the Earth". But as I said, when you
shout "wolf coming" long enough nobody listens.
But ok, I won't dispute you on that one. It also more about the breakdown of ecosystems, than the stripping of commodeties. When ecosystems break
down a reduction of renewable ressources will occur, like wood, fish and the crops on the field.
The only way to change the direction, is if the mind, the attitude of the individual would change. When enough people wish something strong enough, it
might happen. If enough people stop buying useless goods, because they realize it don't make their lives any better or more happy, then it might
If the government of the biggest consumer culture on earth would start cooperate with other governments on reductions on greennouse gases for
instance, a great deal could be achieved.
But I agree, what is done to day, even by government acting ecological responsible, is hardly enough to save us.
When 5 percent of the global population uses close to half the resources and energy it is bound to go wrong. With just a normal common sense you
don't even needs a calculator to figure that out.
I don't know what to do, only if we don't adjust it will go terrible wrong.
You know when you don't face a problem, getting it solved on your premises, the problem will face you and solve itself - then you can do nothing, but
take what comes. It's seldom pleasant.
Of course, if you have money you can buy protection and time, but you can't run away from problems, they will take over sooner or later. And this
problem we have together, we can only solve together. Waging war is another way to buy time, and you can kill everybody but yourself, but you'll be
left with a devastation that only can sustain misery.
Change is the key, but personally I believe it's too late. Folly made an end to us.
And yes, you sure are right mother nature will manage. But it'll be without us.
