A recent report from the UN Environment Programme outlined several troubling issues concerning the world’s ecosystems and the increasing scarcity of natural resources. Conditions stemming from climate change to increased usage are creating taxing demands upon nature. With less rainfall, higher temperatures, and the increased occurrences of natural disasters, the availability of life-sustaining essentials continues to become more scarce with each passing year.
It is truly unfortunate that seemingly everywhere Man has gotten involved the resulting effect has been one of degradation, defilement, or destruction. The never-ending quest for more money, excessive comforts, conveniences, etc. have driven a percentage of our culture to the point of their having a willingness to literally sacrifice the needs of coming generations.
