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.

The Montreal COP: Nature plays second fiddle to climate?

The Montreal COP is done and dusted but there is certainly a bit of dust in our teeth, perhaps, because of the lack of star-dust in the mix of people trying to thrash through these negotiations.   To get to the point, well, the world leaders who are so much a part of the Climate COP were glaringly absent from...

Transboundary water conflicts

Claiming ownership of something that never belonged to anyone “How does one hate a country, or love one? Tibe talks about it; I lack the trick of it. I know people, I know towns, farms, hills and rivers and rocks, I know how the sun at sunset in autumn falls on the side of a certain plowland in the hills;...

Is Sri Lanka actually facing a food crisis?

To hear the pundits and the weighers-in on the matter, we surely do. There is only one problem here. These are armchair detectives sitting in plush Colombo offices that crunch selectively polled numbers to say “Oh my god, we are gonna starve to death in three months because we have no money to import the things we need to import...
