As the world grows bigger and smaller at the same time, we’re running out. Running out of space, running out of food, running out of water . . and running out of time. Even with the world as it is, on fire (for all intents and purposes) there doesn’t seem to be much comprehension or inertia to stop the disaster that’s underway. We have the resources, but do we have the willpower? In some places, yes: in many more, not an inkling or even the slightest cognizance that “this is not a practice run.” or “it’ll go away.” And if it does “go away” we’ll be gone with the wind / dust, as well.
One of the biggest offenders, of course, are automobiles. Yes, you can’t get around getting around, but that’s no excuse. Most cities have decent public transport now, and many countries are pumping every yen / Euro / Singapore Dollar / won / Chilean Peso / Canadian Dollar / Chinese Yuan / New Taiwan Dollar / UAE Dirham that they can into creating fast, affordable and clean rail infrastructure for and into the future. Do you see any obvious major country that is missing on this list? It shouldn’t come as a surprise, really, but it is pitiful. Why is this? Watch the video below that tries to explain this ever widening gap. Pay attention because when countries start to fail, they’ll be left in the embers, and then in the dust.
