Creating a better future …

DSC_0406Recently I had the opportunity to see the documentary “Planet Ocean” – an excellent documentary and really worthwhile viewing. Watching it I was struck by the degree to which some heavily industrialised cities in China, the world’s manufacturing centre, have compromised basic human essentials such as air quality for economic growth and development. It brought home to me yet again the maxim by which I live and work: “If we do not create the future we want, we will have to endure the future we get” as I have to ask myself whether this toxic, polluted and dehumanised environment is one which the Chinese and other industrialised nations are intentionally creating for themselves?
