disposal of growing amount of waste.

Diseases have increased. Habitats are
disappearing. Water supplies are becoming hazardous,
with chemicals, waste and evasive plants and
animals. Like Climate Change we are at a nexus of
whether we will have a clean habitable planet or one that
is hazardous to our health and safety.
Solutions are available. What we have to do
is apply the financial, material and personal
resources to prevent further degrading and prevent any
new sources of pollution. Again we have to make hard
choices or face a grim future.
