Good Resources on Renewable Energy in Maine
January 26th, 2010
Don’t get fired up, just yet anyway. I don’t have a problem with the loads of international aid and outpouring of public support toward Haiti after the disaster. It shows the amazing compassion of humans and how cooperative our society can be.
However, the situation in Haiti has been dire for the past 20 years. All the energy and excitement that is being poured into the country now could have been used to prevent the whole issue for the past 20 years. This issue shows one thing; we, humans, are reactive by nature.
Now lets bridge the gap, how are we doing to deal with the environmental issues we face? Climate Disruption (some say Climate Change), Deforestation, Soil Erosion, Ocean Acidification, the spike in cancer rates, species extinction,water contamination.
All of these actions require prevention not reaction. The situation in Haiti is another prime example of our ability to react quickly to situations but not to take necessary action to prevent them. Is there anyway to combat this? After all, these environmental issues are impacting all humans.
If you have any ideas, please, please, please, please, please let me know. Please. Please.
