Politics: root cause of today’s problems

Lost and spaced

 

 

“All of our exalted technological progress,  civilization for that matter, is comparable to an axe in the hands of a pathological criminal.” —  Albert Einstein.

“”Natura naturans” is the Latin term roughly equivalent to ” nature doing what nature does.”

Einstein once stated that the phrase means “everything in nature is connected.”

He added that “nature is not a product of God…nature is God”

An affront on nature could be the same as a slap in the face of the almighty.

The exploration of outer space was a pet project of President John Kennedy which resulted in a successful moon landing.

The planet needs committed leaders who are equally dedicated to the saving of the planet who will continually lobby for the safeguarding and protection of the ecology.

I suppose there is a certain logic to discovering other worlds out there that may support human life.

But the desecration of another world should not be the end result of search for planets that will sustain our reckless way of existence.

There is an old adage that states “step on enough toes in life and you will eventually trip.”

In this instance stepping on enough of the right toes might help save the planet and mankind from itself. — gc

  2. Hi! I was just reading about the Wyoming economy sparking because of fossil fuels. I’m torn on the subject. The hype is that wind power is too expensive. Sigh.

    • It depends where in the country you are located. There was a news story from a coal mining area that finds it cheaper to use solar panels rather than coal. The number of people employed in the mining industry ahs fallen substantially over the years. The cost of using the coal has increased geometrically. High teech machines are doing the majority of the work in some places. The country has to get a grip on reality I’m afraid.
