Environmental Awareness by Boris Pelcer
We live in profit-driven economies that often fail to create the most efficient methods of utilizing natural resources to satisfy the needs of humanity. A perfect example of inefficiency is food distribution. Mere observation, that globally both obesity & malnutrition is continually increasingly, is a good indicator of inefficient systems. As a result, some places are able to obtain more resources than necessary, while others have very limited, if any access to the needed resources that go beyond the food industry | www.who.int. Large corporations dictate most of the resource distribution & availability. As such, it would take a lot of effort to create change. I don’t have the answers. However, as a method of providing some thought provoking ideas & encourage the efforts in creating solutions, I used my refugee experience of living a simpler life, as a scenario of what life might be like for our children & grandchildren if economies collapsed, due to the our inability to efficiently utilize the natural resources. If this series doesn’t encourage some thought provoking ideas through discomfort, I hope at least, it will help you better appreciate all the wonderful things in your life.
