Caused by human activities, climate change is going to bring massive and harmful consequences. The health of our environment needs to be treated seriously if we want to ensure good living conditions for our descendants and other living organisms. It’s time to take the natural environment into account in our economy.
We live in a throw-away economy where the concern for natural resources and pollution of our planet emerged only as a recent phenomenon. There still exists a huge gap between our consumption habits and the ability of Earth to replenish itself. We need to close this gap as soon as possible.
When only a limited group of people has access to opportunities and resources, the rest of the society has no way to voice their opinion and use their creativity or the potential to increase the quality of life. This hampers our general progress and creates unnecessary injustice.
