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.

Anthropogenic Climate Change: Has it marginalized the bigger environmental issues?

(This post was inspired by our work in the KCF under the COLIBRI project funded by the EU where we found ourselves scratching our heads and recalibrating all the grandiose schemes we had created to respond to climate change impacts in the region as well as by  general discourse among various global climate activists, correspondents and other um… heh… “stakeholders”....
