I thought I was going to bed early until I saw this post on Facebook by Venerable Jing Kong. What he had said really echoed my thoughts about why we are having a decaying world. He placed in all the complex reasons in very concise points that shoot the demon out of the chaos, which we are all suffering now. The very reason of human ethical decay is the main reason why our world collapses, and why justice can can take such a long time to come. Technology can rectify the problems but for a permanent solution, a human change in character for the good must be achieved. I am pasting a screenshot of what the Venerable has said, and hopefully this will open eyes for more people to come forth for a stronger voice for environmental conservation and humanity.

A fine and very creative example to use renewable resources. After Fukushima, I think the Japanese are adamant to stray away from nuclear and out in their research efforts in other renewable sources for energy. Not only does this solar plant is aesthetically pleasing but it is as beautiful on the inside as far as the intentions are. I hope more innovations and implementations of this kind will eventually replace nuclear energy. I suppose it takes a good blast to learn the lessons up. But I do hope we don’t need to do another one to master the real lessons of self destruction. There are many ways to power. Don’t blow it up because of stupidity and greed. – Karen Fu

Material consumption could be as bad as nuclear waste November 15, 2013Posted by @Karen_Fu in environment, environmental pollution, Pictures, Quick thoughts.

We are what we do. I doubt we are heading in the right environmental conservation direction if our material consumption doesn’t reduce. The break down of these materials can be as long as nuclear decomposition. Thrift is of essence. A change of life views on material attainment has got to be revised. I often wonder how much waste we have been producing and trying the bury them somewhere. Can we really thrash unwanted goods after their shelf life is gone? Design to last or design to sustain would be the way to go. But I doubt money mongers will like the idea. Its more convenient to create fashion and let consumers keep on to it to spin them money. Then again, if we could wittily remind them that we may all perished or damaged by various pollutants around; per chance they might just have their sanity back in to agree with real change. – Karen Fu
