Keely Smith, wife of Pierce
Brosnan who once played James Bond in the Bond movies, said in an
interview to Reader's Digest:
"Our environmental activism stems from a passion in two people who
really care about our children. Protecting the environment is really
about protecting their future. I'd like my children to be able to drink
clean water and breathe clean air and live somewhere safe." Reader's
Digest describes Pierce Brosnan as the best dad in Hollywood.
Mrs.Pierce Brosnan has beautifully summed up why we should all act to
protect our environment and improve it. With the geometric growth of
population we are witnessing a fast dwindling of resources necessary to
maintain our health and well being even in our own times. In reality,
environmental concerns and the actions arising out of them are kindness
to ourselves and our progeny.
The earth is like a spaceship with all the resources to support life.
These resources, however, are not inexaustible. To ensure continuance
of life on this planet it is necessary for us to give thought to
conservation of all resources, with a priority for those which have
already become scarce. Our quality of life has already deteriorated
owing to industrialization, urbanization and other developments during
the last century. Many of us who were born in the early years of the
last century realize the marked deterioration.
Action to protect, preserve and restore a quality environment is
therefore an important avenue for kindness. There is a wide scope for
individual acts of environmental kindness in many areas. You have to
study all the problems and also the suggested remedies. You get a lot
of information in the popular press, and we shall bring you more in
this newsletter. One can then select one or two areas in which to
become active by joining or helping some suitable voluntary
organization. You don't really have to give too much time to it.
If it is really impossible for you to offer time and resources to
voluntary organization right now, you can at least modify your habits
and lifestyle so that you will at least not add to the deterioration of
the environment. Watch this website for ideas in this field. You could
very easily adopt some of them and help preserve our earth through
kindness to the environment.
There are no new prophets to solve
present human problems and assure our continued welfare. However
educated and enlightened people must follow and propagate environmental
ethics which can save us from an otherwise certain catastrophe.
to the environment is really kindness to people, which includes your
sons and daughters and all your descendents. Some very simple ideas for
kindness to the environment:
