Let us agree not to disagree

The Industrial Age was defined by selfishness, self-servitude and ego and even good people were not immune to those combined blights. Even that minority of great human beings who fought for a sustainable world were not immune to the bug of “industrialitis” with each small pocket doing their own little thing thinking that their way was not only the right way but the only way. This rude, misguided righteousness had the negative result it deserved. Instead of pooling resources and strengths to help the common push towards sustainability, they ended up fighting each other to the point where the common enemy became a lesser enemy that those very people that they should be called friends. The next person with an alternative idea of how to achieve sustainability became a greater demon than the industrial dragon itself. Friends, sustainability is complex and requires a fundamental kindness and empathy among its proponents. Therefore, let us not work with the stupidity of industrial age mindsets in our ongoing effort to shift to sustainability. We do not have to agree but at the very least, let us agree not to disagree.

El Niño is hell bent on severely disrupting Sri Lanka’s already hammered economy!

Back in May 2023, I reported on the spike in ocean temperatures and issued our own warning to the people to get ready for a good old climate face-punch/kidney sock/kick to the nether human regions.  I doubt that warning had any effect. In Sri Lanka, we try to stop things after those things have stopped hitting us and gone on to...

Water Water Everywhere… but…?

Even as I write, the UN’s first water conference in an entire generation is into its first formal session after a day of side events at the UNHQ, NYC, USA. That the water issue is top of the heap of world threatening crises is a given. On one side it is a crisis in itself, on another side it is...

Going…going…gone…

First, we thought that the earth was at the center of the universe. Next, we knew that sun is at the center of that small sliver of the universe we might call our own. Now? Now we believe, each and every one of us, that we are, individually, the center of every universe.   We have gone from geocentricity to...
