I have worked at companies with good leadership and poor leadership.  Generally you don’t appreciate the good leadership until you have been in a situation with poor leadership. 

 

I think the same is true of the environment.

There is currently a push to take short cuts with the environment to expedite the recovery of the economy.  I understand and agree that we need to make pragmatic choices balancing the two concerns.  However, 50 years from now would we rather tell our grandchildren that we were able to increase GDP growth by 1% per year or that they can safely swim in the river?

    As with everything else 21st Century, it’s the “not my problem,” “what’s in it for me ,” and “what did I do to deserve this” attitudes that will really prevent any bold environmental improvements.

    Sadly, I think that consumers, businesses and politicians are not willing to make the sacrifices necessary to push for broad sweeping environmental change.

    Did you see the hurricane forecast for this year? More named and severe storms than last year predicted. Are these the “act of God” or due to dramatic swings in ocean temperatures.

    What did I do to deserve this?

    Generally the economic cost of goods are not factored into the price people pay. If there was an effective mechanism for doing this globally it would impact people’s purchasing choices in an developmentally positive way.

    To be fair, some places like India have no easy answer. They simply have more people than they can maintain in a sustainable manner. I’m not sure the answer to that.

    In the US I believe we do a pretty good job. Even at times going a little too far with some environmental protection. However, I would rather err on the side of a little too far than not far enough.
