It may be said that at last some men are beginning to
take seriously the dangers posed by global warming and the consequent
climate changes that this is bringing about. It is true that there
is much disagreement over the reality and extent of the dangers, and
of the best means of approaching the problems which are agreed to exist.
However, there is no doubt that some men, at least, are recognizing
that men face a formidable task in halting the progress of destruction
and in stabilizing the environment. It is also true that even the most
aware and concerned of men know little of the extent and complexity
of the problems.
The problem of pollution is such a case. Pollution takes many forms,
some obvious and easily dealt with, if the will to do so exists. Some,
however, require a science and a remedy as yet unknown to man; they are
so toxic and destructive that they must be given high priority to overcome.
The effect of pollution on the quality of air, food, on animals, and
on fish, in rivers and the oceans, is known but largely ignored. The
most destructive of all, that caused by nuclear radiation, awaits discovery
by Earth scientists. The upper levels of nuclear radiation are beyond
the present atomic technology. They are also the most toxic and hazardous
to man and the lower kingdoms. On all those levels the problems of pollution
must be overcome. This can be achieved only by a complete reconstruction
of the present political, economic and social structures.
Man has ravaged and polluted the Earth, and severely damaged his own
environment. Now man must see it as a top priority to remedy what
he has hurt and so restore to health his ailing planet. He must learn
to simplify his demands on the planet and learn the beauty of simplicity
and the joy of sharing.
Man has but little choice: the urgency of the task demands immediate
action; few indeed realize the true scale of damage already done. The
question may be asked: can planet Earth be saved and by what means?
The answer is a resounding YES! and by means which involve the transformation
of the present modes of living by the majority of men.
The paramount ambition of all so-called ‘developed’ countries
is to achieve an ever higher percentage of growth of their economies
to become, thereby, richer; and, in an economic world based on competition,
to attain dominance and power, and so enjoy a higher standard of life.
This being so, the pillaging of the Earth, the cavalier waste of resources,
is seen as only natural and necessary. This irresponsible action has
at last brought Planet Earth almost to its knees.
Maitreya, you can be sure, will not be long in addressing this urgent
problem and in presenting His solutions. The first step, he will
advocate, is the acceptance of the urgency which many today deny.
Sharing, he will say, is the beginning of the process of change which
will provide the answers to our woes and the rehabilitation of Earth.
