I’ve been thinking for a while now to volunteer my time for conservation efforts. Wildlife and nature conservation. Help preserve the trees around us, the birds and the butterflies, the animals -things like that.
Thinking about conservation always brings up the question of human development though, and whether a balance is possible between our using up of natural resources, and nature;s innate ability to replenish it. Currently, the equation is not in favor of mother nature. The evidence is everywhere – tree covers are dwindling rapidly, and so are water bodies. Climate is changing. We are using up nature;s resources iInto putting more fuel into our cars, more Air-conditioning to beat the heat that is happenning because of climate change, creating more and bigger and better of everything.Will we use up so much that we run out?
The term sustainable development was coined to convey an idea. That of human development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.It seems imperative to me that we look at this sustainable development thing closely. And pay attention to it. All of us.
Or very soon, we will have used up whatever was given to us.
OR am i missing something here?
