At no time in the history of the planet have we faced so many challenges, threats, issues, destruction, all man-made, to the future of the planet. The purpose of this site is to highlight these concerns. This is a non-political, non-partisan, non-religious and non-ideological effort with no agenda,  simply to reveal the facts and truths of the State of the Planet, as they are today.

We spend our entire lifetimes getting and spending and using and exploiting the Planet’s resources, without any care and without restoring and preserving the resources that we use for a sustainable future. Education systems and practices are built to fully exploit the Earth’s resources with utter disrespect and disdain for nature and animals, the proof is everywhere, a simple example is species extinction.

What is wrong with the World today, what are we doing wrong? How are we destroying the Planet, all in the name of progress and modernization.

“We are but transient passengers on this planet Earth. It does not belong to us. We are not free to doom generations yet unborn. We are not at liberty to erase humanity’s past or dim its future. Social systems do not endure for eternity. Only life can lay claim to uninterrupted continuity. This continuity is sacred.”

86% of the world’s resources are consumed by the world’s wealthiest 20%.

The more urbanized and industrialized a country becomes, the more trash it produces.

No Water, No Life – No Blue, No Green,

Less Technology, More Independance.

State of the Planet

The World Is Too Much With Us by William Wordsworth

Concern about the effects of consumerism and materialism is not a new thing. As far back as 1806, in his poem, The World is too much with us; late and soon. William Wordsworth warned against the phenomenon of “getting and spending”:

The world is too much with us; late and soon,
Getting and spending, we lay waste our powers;—
Little we see in Nature that is ours;
We have given our hearts away, a sordid boon!
This Sea that bares her bosom to the moon;
The winds that will be howling at all hours,
And are up-gathered now like sleeping flowers;
For this, for everything, we are out of tune;
It moves us not. Great God! I’d rather be
A Pagan suckled in a creed outworn;
So might I, standing on this pleasant lea,
Have glimpses that would make me less forlorn;
Have sight of Proteus rising from the sea;
Or hear old Triton blow his wreathèd horn.

 

We are today so ensnared in the process of buying and selling things in the market place, that we cannot imagine human life being otherwise. Because, consumption and consumerism dominate social discourse and political agendas of all parties, consumerism hogs the limelight at centre stage as the prime objective of life.
 
 
 

Packaging – much of it single-use food wrapping – has created a rubbish problem that now pollutes every corner of the world, we’d also do well to follow France’s lead in banning plastic cutlery, cups and plates.C
 
 
Plastic is a substance the earth cannot digest, REFUSE SINGLE-USE PLASTIC
 
 
The human race is on a path to self-destruction, what with the exploding population, it seems as if people would like to replace animals by making them extinct and also replacing them with “domesticated animals” for food purposes as well as cutting down trees wherever possible for farm land or housing. bv.
