So where have we gone wrong and what are we doing to our own Home? Our beautiful Planet that is unlike any other which is filled with life, filled with color and filled with vibrant beauty. Maybe it may have a much shorter life than the creator intended. With it our life follow, meaning each and every one of us. We are all to blame for the unimaginable size of the pollution that we have created for ourselves through our excess consumption, our disposable habits and our carelessness in throwing wastes right in our own backyard. There is no way we can clean it up. Since it is a next to impossible task we will never pursue it. To clean up wastes new Businesses have popped in raking in money as well. First we bring in the industrial age to satisfy consumers with goods they don’t need, then they do a great job in disposing off everything into our landfills, polluting our air, water and land.So why manufacture in the first place. Why don’t we manufacture through custom ordering and let go mass production? This will reduce excess production, excess inventory and excess waste. WE will then start using only what is needed. Today we have TV sizes from 1 inch LED to 150 inch LED. All we need is to get the information that is necessary. The size of the TV does not matter, but it seems like for some size matters.
Most of the houses today, especially in and around all major metropolitan cities around the World have at least a minimum of two cars. Multiply that by the amount of people who drive those cars on a daily basis. This will give us the extent of smoke pollution that is being expelled into the atmosphere throughout the World each and every second. This explains why we cannot even take a breath of our so called fresh air. Fresh air does not even exist these days. Our ocean and air currents carry with it all the toxic wastes that we generate and carry it along to every far corners of the World. This tells us why plastics are washing up along the shores of even remote Islands. A dust storm that happens in the Sahara Desert may spill these dust particles 3000 miles away after crossing the Atlantic and over on to the Amazon rain forests. Our World has become a very small place indeed and is well connected on a micro and macro scale with all its residents. Any set back in that one link will transcend to others like a ripple in a pond. This is in fact a very fragile ecosystem. As Humans, we do not seem to understand that nor do we seem to get it. Technology has helped us to know more about our entire Planet like never before but we are still continuing to do business the old fashioned way.
If the Sun decides to crank up its power we are toast. If it decides to lower the power we would all freeze in an instant.
As Humans, we are only renting this Planet. We are in fact highly insignificant beings. For example, Just try comparing our size to the entire Planet Earth. Now one scale up try comparing ourselves to our solar system with all the Planets, then our Galaxy and then outwards towards the dark Cosmos. It’s scaled at infinity. Now can we appreciate how tiny we are.
