“There are, obviously, all kinds of ecological perils out there. We’ve overfished our seas, we’ve overcut our forests. Fresh water is beginning to run short, and species are disappearing at a rapid rate. You can come up with a long and troubling list, including the disturbing fact that most of the world’s people are so poor they can barely summon the energy to care about the larger world.” – State of the Planet 2006
We the people need to back up and rethink our priorities; be more rigid in complying with current laws for the environment and food safety…and, set up new laws with more agents capable of rigid enforcement!
Example: The Clean Water Act adopted by Congress in 1972, set a very ambitions goal of having all of America’s waters fishable and swimmable; however, we are nowhere near that. We do not develop in a way that protects clean water. It is a system that does not work; in other words we do not comply with the laws that congress passed; we do not have the human power to enforce these laws!
“The real truth of the matter is, as you and I know, that a financial element in the larger centers has owned the government since the days of Andrew Jackson. In politics nothing happens by accident; if it happens, you can be sure we planned it that way.”
-President Franklin Roosevelt
