Philosophizing About the Environment
The second insight to environmental stability, is the recognition that many well developed aspects of our enterprises or economy, has created extensively huge wealth. This allows us to integrate capital with physical assets on one hand, and scientific knowledge and technological innovation on the other, to bring about solution to the current disequilibrium in the environment. We can create enforcible standards that proffer solution to climate change and the air and water pollution problems. We can invest in enterprises that will create wealth from stabilizing the environment and create green jobs. The determination of risks associated with environmental pollution, while may not be totally eliminated, can be accounted for in the way we manage resource use. This will in turn yield that desired results that we are seeking: equilibrium in resource use and the stability of the environment. If only we can sum up the courage to do the right thing.
