EVERY EXPANSION HAS DIRECT
INFLUENCES ON ENVIRONMENT
The Earth's surface is the most
important index of our physical existence, social and political
evolution. The rise and decline, not only of peoples, but of whole
civilizations have depended upon their relations to Earth and their
local area. Therefore problems of our area, such as the expansion of a
small territory, the economic and political mastery of a large one,
dominate all history. In last 60 years we experienced tremendous growth
which carries with it a huge cost that our environment pays.
Every expansion, positive or negative
has direct influences on environment. Developing business and
residential areas strips away green space and trees. The
impressive amount of additional people coming in new developed areas
and businesses create massive amounts of additional waste, use huge
number of additional gallons of water each day, and drive many more
cars and other industrial vehicles that pollute our air.
The responsibility is on
every individual not on some imaginary hero who is
going to change things for us and save the Earth. In order to implement
changes we have to take responsibility for our own actions and start in
the local area NOW.
Our relations to our environment are
infinitely more numerous and complex than those of the most highly
plants or animals. We have been so noisy about the way we conquered
Nature, and Nature has been so silent about group or individual
persistent bad influences over our own habitat, that the environmental
factor in the equation of future human development has been overlooked.
