If you want to change the World, begin from yourself...

"However, I wrote a belated post of my own about an environmental issue that might strike a cord with some of your readers."

As you said, it sounds as old news, but never so "new".
I live in Italy and I mostly love ceramic or cotto floors.
They last longer than wood and you can wash them easily.
But I like wood of course and I agree with the indiscriminate deforestation.
Too bad the people who shout most are sons of the ones who made the deforestation in Europe and still do it in some way.
That is what I call "before shouting at others look at yourself" and "if you want to change the world begin from you".
I live in a country town (2500 people) and you would expect to find here a lot of trees and flowers and green.
You find mostly concrete and in the last decades the only thing they did was building, building and building.
Some places look more like "ghettoes" than building. Tens of people living in few square meters.
Because it is more convenient to build many small apartments than houses with gardens.
It is also more convenient for the city hall.
They avoid to build new sewers and concentrate all in a small place.
They like people with a lot of cars, because more cars mean more taxes and more profits for the Fiat and of course for the State.
The worst enemy of man is the man himself, or may be his stupidity.
If we want to have a lot of money to have a better life, isn't it stupid to have a worse life to earn more money?
