There is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, with music in it’s roar
I love not Man the less, but Nature more

– Lord Byron

The ‘live’ statistics below show the consequences of ‘too much and too soon’ approaches to civilisation. We bear witness to the acceleration and limitations of humanity’s misuse of Mother Earth’s resources, while ignoring those limitations that are self evident. If we don’t slow down, reset and revise our past achievements and values, we will not be able to bear the burden of what’s to come.  


Judge not each day by the harvest you reap, but by the seeds you sow.
