Sadly our nations leaders can still not find their common sense to take action against environmental degradation and over onusmption. Malthusian theory focused on overpopulation but our disregard by corporate greed and lack of governance could not have been anticipated. If the planet’s people were to live like us, in the west, we would need 6 earths. Clearly that indicates we our not just unfair but over consuming. Projects like the tar sands are so destructive and dirty that it shames Canada. We should leave the oil in the sand and make a statement for a smarter future. Sooner or later we need to close the carbon dependency gap.
