‘Slowdown may be good for planet’ from the inquirer.net website
Basically, a Nobel Prize winning scientist said that the recent financial crisis and economic slowdown may be really environmentally good for the planet. Come to think of it, this is a really good statement. It may be a bit insensitive towards businessmen and manufacturers but it makes sense. In my case, I'm happy with the thought and I'm not surprised. Everything is based on the concept of Yin and Yang. Cause and Effect. There has always been balance and everything moves towards that pivotal point of equilibrium. All the economic growth has literally killed the environment and created weather anomalies throughout the world. A chain reaction occurs as storms and hurricanes kills many people and drive others away from their homes (like we drive away animals from their forest homes perhaps). Cruel as it may seem but I guess this is a wake-up call to us. A time of stasis. The world is trying to harmonize everything out. As we kill the environment, the environment kills us. We don't need to be Nobel Prize winning scientists to figure this out but think about it... Think about what we have done, about the power man has over the planet and how we can turn it around if we ONLY wanted to.
