Half of our world production is waste. In the US it is three quarters! When will we awaken to that sad situation?
"Dear Robert, what you say is correct. Sometimes I feel that since I will die anyway in four million years, it might as well happen sooner. Why should I deplore endlessly more wrong human ideas, behavior and actions on my skin? You have become my cancer."
Please dear Earth, do not give up. Millions of humans like me, growing in numbers, want to prevent it. Guide us, counsel us, give us ideas. We love you dearly.
"Well, to begin with, if only humans could simply decide no longer to buy things which they do not really need."

Chapter 4 - Our Place in Time
In the 17th century, Bishop Usher thought that the Earth was 4000 years old. Then the French naturalist Buffon estimated that it was at least several hundred thousand years old. Today we believe that our planet is more than 4 1/2 billion years old and that our sun and Earth will remain in existence for another 6 to 8 billion years until we explode and vanish again into the universe to become other stars and planets.
We are therefore beginning to wonder how much longer we can grow "economically" at the expense of the planet. Limits to growth have been recognized and the concept of sustainable development is now predominant. Concern about the future is arising and spreading rapidly throughout the human society.
