We live in Interesting Times

The nations of the world are set on growing their economies. It is, they think, the best way to increase prosperity and reduce their debts. Certainly it will increase material prosperity, if growth can be achieved but at the cost of the environment. We live in the environment and as our economies grow and nations become materially wealthier so our the places where their peoples live become more malignant.

What does it profit humanity to gain the whole world if humanity then has no place to live?
