Lets take our share of responsibilities on our global footprints

I read this incredible article about our footprints on our planet, which is a topic that we have to be concerned rather sooner then later in our societies. You will find some highlights from this writer´s opinion which I agree 100%. Specially by creating a conscious ideas how we think and see the world, and that we all have to respond to nature´s needs pressured by the global crisis.

This article leaves me hopes that some how we can react to a crisis; even though we are still on denial, not wanting to accept our share of responsibilities, but we are getting to the point were we could not stop facing these serious facts.
