Is this progress?

6 Feb

If we stop logging our forests and rainforests, entire families, towns and cities earning a living through logging will struggle, starve, die. If we don’t stop logging, “the Amazon rainforest will turn into the Amazon desert”, and these families will ultimately still struggle, starve, and so on, and the changes to the face of our Earth will be irreversible.

“Progress” costs humanity a lot more than just the environment. Logging in the Amazon is just one example.

If you have some time to spare, I recommend watching “Surviving Progress”.

More links to come as I delve deeper into this topic.
