This one is so nice and thought-provoking photo :). I am doing a work for sustainable development and wonder if I can use your photo. This is non commercial and I will refer to the resource :)

Nehéz dolog ez a fenntartható fejlődés :) Környezeti szakos infrastruktúra építőmérnökként kb óránként hallom ezt a szóösszetételt, és mindenki érti, miről van szó, mégis nehéz definiálni :) Ezzel is csak az a baj, hogy honnan tudhatjuk, hogy mi fogja veszélyeztetni a következő generációt? Van amiről biztosan tudjuk, van amit sejtünk, és biztosan fel fogunk még fedezni csomó más dolgot is, amit ma ártalmatlannak hiszünk. Ki mondja meg mennyi az a határérték, amin túl már káros egy dolog?
És ugyanez fordítva, amit ma még nem tudunk például a víztisztítás során eltávolítani, lehet, hogy egy évtized múlva már röhögve vonunk ki a vízből. Nehéz egyensúlyt találni, az biztos :D Mi meg valahol a szennyező gyárak és a Green Peace között vagyunk, a sárdobálás kereszttüzében :D Kíváncsi lennék, neked mi a véleményed :)

nehéz dolog az biztos...... eleve, hogy már lassan 7 milliárdan vagyunk, pedig 1987ben még csak 5 milliárdan voltunk. ez borzalmas tempó. gyakorlatilag _bármit_ csinálunk az egyszerűen nem lehet fenntartható. ugyanakkor jómagam hiszek a természet önszabályozó erejében. ha majd tényleg sokan leszünk, akkor majd szépen megfulladunk páran, a szmogtól pl. :)
az biztos, hogy az irány rossz, kérdés a tempó. előbb tudunk e kitelepülni egy másik bolygóra, minsem hogy megölnénk magunkat? ez a verseny tétje kb.
nem is tudtam, hogy van ilyen, hogy környezeti szakos építőmérnök... mivel foglalkoztok? fenntarthatóvá tenni a fenntarthatatlant?
köszi a kommentet :) :heart:

A környezeti szakos építőmérnök az, aki kitakarít a sok gonosz gyár után: kármentesítés, hulladékgazdálkodás, szennyvíz, ilyesmi :)
Tegnap az egyetemen az egyik előadónk biztatott arra minket, hogy amikor majd tényleg túl sokan leszünk a földön, akkor azt majd az építőmérnököknek kell megoldani, és pedig a következő mechanizmussal: nukleáris fegyverrel nem, biológiai fegyverrel nem, következő szint: ivóvíz. ki tisztítja az ivóvizet: az építőmérnök. Kész a megoldás... Komolyan mondom, belefájdult a fejem, azt hittem leszédülök a székemről, hogy egy egyetemi előadó nyilvánosan az előadásán ilyen szöveget megenged magának... Túl nagy a Greenpeace aktivisták egy km2-re jutó koncentrációja :D

A csapvíz ivásról mindig csak azt mondom, hogy egy építőmérnöknek a csapvíz olyan, mint a kolbászgyári dolgozónak a kolbász: ha egyszer láttad, hogy készül, többé inkább nem veszed meg a boltban :D Na jó, ez azért nem teljesen igaz, de elég gusztustalan dolgok tudnak lenni, az ténykérdés :D

it's a strong image, evocative, thought provoking
nature, dominated by an urban corporate jungle
although seemingly nurtured
the unlikely fruit of two parents who can't produce life themselves
perhaps that defines corporate capitalism, a dominant species that wishes it could create something truly beautiful, but can't
and therefore must adopt.

'Tis a pleasure, Squire :ahoy:

There are two types of squire, one spelt with an S, and an s.
The Squire, is one who is landed, the Village Squire. Class wise,
I suppose middle - upper middle.
A squire is a gofor for a Knight, he looks after his master's armour &
weapons and make certain everything is in good order else he'll feel the pain.

I's just an 'umble weaver, I is :D
