As humanity’s relationship with the world continues to break down, we are forced to consider the fact we have failed to make the proper decisions about nature, the use of natural resources, the use of industrial processes and our failure to become part of the natural order.
Using technology, humanity has chosen to consider itself above ‘natural laws’. We consider our need to produce materials, renewable or recyclable or not, as a right which cannot be infringed upon. Even as suggest such things, our weather has gone from seasonal and predictable, to extremes of weather and introducing two new season variances, the extreme seasons of flood and fire. These new seasons, span months across the calendar and affect life around the world.
Witness the latest monsoons in China, Japan and North Korea, born out of rising temperatures in the placid but hot Indian Ocean. Such storms form there and move out onto the monsoon track. Such storms normally pass over the region and disappear, but in recent weeks, the storms stall over Japan and Korea dumping multiple inches of rain every hour until entire towns are flooded.
These storms are just a symptom of a larger and more problematic relationship. As the industrial age and mechanization of resource acquisition heats ups, so will the side effects of the industrial age: waste heat, greenhouse gases, pollution of air and water, dead zones and acidification of the ocean, loss of biodiversity and rising sea levels.
