Air, water, food, shelter, clothing, health, fun

When things get tough we get back to priorities like our ancestors did. Unfortunately, throughout the centuries gone by the old barter system has been replaced by our now taken for granted money system. The days of, “I’ll help you today and some day you’ll help me” have been replaced with, “if I don’t have enough cash today, I’ll borrow some and pay later.” The difference is that today, when you borrow money, when you pay it back, it will involve paying considerably more when the interest is tacked on. 

Let’s take a look at the basics. We have borrowed too much from air and water by polluting for centuries. Now we are faced with the very expensive job of cleaning or de-polluting our air and water so that our future generations can live. The cost of clean-up will not only be very, very expensive, but our very lifestyle will have to change to slow down, stop and reverse pollution.
