The World That Could Be
There’s the world that could be
The world that will be
And the world that is.
All that stands between them
Some people see life as something that happens to them that they are not in control of. Some people believe that the world is so big that we can have no effect on it.
I think this is plainly nonsense.
We can see quite clearly that humans have already had an enormous impact on the planet. Now the 8 Billion of us are sufficient in number and great enough in our technological impact to devastate the world.
I do not share the view that we are impotent. We are in control of both our lives and our impact on the planet.
We should respect and cherish both.
