Most people may not think they are worried about the future of our planet, but deep down we all do – just in different ways
We all get it, the world is in trouble. It’s tough to hear and hard to process, and to cope with this information depends on how we’re prepared to deal with it. Some go into denial, think that climate change is just a natural phenomenon and has nothing to do with human activity. Some, think, oh well, I can’t do anything about it or I’m too old to worry about it. Some, go into overdrive and create groups or standoffs with governments and demand immediate action. We’re all different and we all cope in different ways.
I’m not a scientist, I’m not an activist and I’m certainly not in denial that our planet is in trouble. I can only speak for myself, but I do believe that whatever your reaction to our current ecological situation, with our growing human population, that to live in a sustainable way is ultimately a goal we all must try and attain to give nature and our species a chance to thrive in generations to come. No one can argue the fact that the resources on planet earth are finite.
Did you know 80% of our planet’s resources are used up by 20% of the human population?
Currently the world is out of balance, many people live in poverty and too many big companies take resources and profits which only benefit the few. Greed, lack of accountability and praying on vulnerable people is what our current global economic system is based on. Surely, this cannot continue and we need to see that how we live on our planet, how we treat each other, effects our planet too.
