The cost of ‘swanky’

RWS_Tarot_13_Death
You worked hard and I mean real hard. Slogged through school, university, got into a top-grade B-school, top-grade employer, 7 figure salary. And now you deserve the rewards. The grand apartment, the SUV, the works. The ‘works’ being – Buildings that ape the architecture in the developed world without any thought to the local environment. Rampant cutting down of trees. Decades of debt to finance artificially inflated apartments. Swimming pools inside apartments when entire cities have no viable drinking water. A constantly depleting water table, hotter cities, runaway pollution acerbating the greenhouse effect.

1 degree Celsius: That’s the increase in the last 11,000+ years.

The temperatures today are the highest in the last 4000 years

Maybe living with less is the only option left.
