Everyone in the World Should Be Taxed on Their Energy Footprint

image edited by Fernando Kaskais The elite should have to pay for their lifestyle. by Aeon and Iason Athanasiadis   Creative Commons Technological advances and historically unprecedented income inequalities have raised living standards while enabling a new global elite to enjoy lifestyles more lavish in energy consumption and environmental impact than those enjoyed by any aristocracy in the past.

The evolution of reality: Psychology professor explains how each generations’ perception of their environment changes the definition of “the natural world”

 by: Rita Winters (Natural News) Each and every person defines nature in his own way. For some, nature may be a city park. Others consider nature simply as a flower pushing through the pavement. No matter how urbanized or polluted a city may be, some people would consider a single tree in the midst of skyscrapers to be “nature”. This is not the case however, according to psychology professor Peter Kahn, from the University of Washington. Every generation will have its own perspective or understanding of what the norm for nature is, despite the surrounding pollution and concrete (infrastructural development). A child who … Continue reading The evolution of reality: Psychology professor explains how each generations’ perception of their environment changes the definition of “the natural world”
