There's an air that hovers over the twenty-first century, an air that foretells of an forthcoming
ecological disaster. protective practices resembling recycling, and the advertising of the
responsible utilization of typical assets, aid to sluggish the destruction of the earth, yet they don't remedy its approaching destruction. they don't indicate of the matter, in the direction of a global free of ecological difficulties.
