It is fascinating how quickly comments jump to judgement. We should know the effects in order to make informed decisions. This issue is rife with people taking specific stands based on s single criteria. we need to understand the real consequences of actions if we are to be able to develop workable and effective solutions. The current situation is unbearable, yet we go ahead as if it was a kind of normal, as if it was an acceptable cost of doing business, or following a way of life. There has to be a discussion that gets beyond name calling and knee-jerk reactions. This author is making a point about the need to actually see what we are talking about. We have to know, we may have many rights but we have a responsibility to leave the world a better place for our children and all the children. Right now, the evidence is fairly clear and damning that despite having the most advanced tools and capabilities ever, we are creating a legacy that future generations will wear like a curse. We have rights, fine, but first we must stand up for our responsibility.

Cheers,
