Don’t fill landfill with school waste
How is it that the State Department of Education can fill our landfill with disposable food trays, cups, utensils from every public school on the island – even with the schools already having dish washing machines in place?
Take better care of our resources
There is a riveting, thought-provoking documentary on ABC which focuses on the possibility that the 21st Century may be the last for planet, Earth. With myriad reasons why this might be so, a major contributing factor is the way human-kind has plundered our natural resources because we bear the attitude of “dominion” over anything and everything else, and “it” is there for our taking as we wish, regardless of the consequences. Cut down the forests. Dry up our water resources. Contaminate anything and everything in sight.
All of that, and at the same time: Haven’t we been able to establish a worldwide population in the billions and counting and developed the ways by which we can fend off diseases and come up with the “miracles” of medical research to cure the incurable?
With that said, it may do us well to consider ways in which ZPG should be our mantra; and taking care of our finite resources
before everything goes kaput!
We may not have too many more “Happy New Years” left if we keep on what we’re doing like a bunch of self-centered egoists
with a penchant for destroying what’s around us to meet the whims of our fancy like a bunch of demanding idiots!
