adapting to a changing world

adapting to a changing world~ Shanghai

In today’s world, pollution is discussed in terms like high or low, toxic or just unhealthy, almost accepting it as a part of everyday life and forgetting to ask the basic question: why do we have to live with it?

That is a very good question Mimo… Why do we have to live with companies dumping toxic residue in rivers; entire villages dumping their trash into the “Caรฑon del sumidero” (A supposedly lovely site in Chiapas, Mexico)? ’cause there’s no garbage collection whatsoever for miles and miles upstream, so all the garbage is dumped in the river; why do we have to live with people dumping their empty plastic bottle, or empty junk food bag on the street (or in front of your house…) cause it’s too heavy or “dirty” to carry the empty plastic bottle or bag??? Why are most streets actual dumpsters because the local politicians have split the money – theoretically – assigned for street sweeping and cleaning? Why indeed?
Thanks for the thought Mimo.
Keep up the great work.
Take care

Pollution is destroying our world. In Scandinavia they just talk about CO2 now, but there are so many threats to humanity and nature. It must stop. Otherwise I agree with Antolomagico, we are all part of it.
