Morning. Thought I’d start today’s miscellaneous rambling with drama, horror and wonder. I like to think of myself as a bit of an eco warrior and when I come across exciting, thought provoking ideas and events, I want to share. I wish I could insist that everyone (complacent and non-complacent) watch this:
Ed’s photography is fantastic and yes the aptness of the cliche works well here, a picture does speak a thousand words . With the evidence staring right at you,, its impossible to deny the massive effect our consumer driven lifestyle has on the landscape. The sheer volume of resources (everything, people, nature, cities…) we manufacture and manipulate is mind blowing. Ed’s photos and talk isn’t new territory. It tells us what we already know and we really wish we didn’t.
Stop! Don’t head for that top secret nuclear bunker just yet. People can do amazing things.
