Demo condemns inactivity on environment

A demonstration Sunday on the eve of Earth Day condemned government inaction on environmental issues.

This is really obvious, but I don’t see anyone talking about it: Governing is impossible, because on the one hand, you have to make decisions to save the environment and maintain a viable ecosystem, while on the other, you have to stimulate the economy and create jobs. There will always be an unresolvable tension between them. This hit me while looking at the vast, vast amount of junk you can buy cheap from sites like Temu and Aliexpress, and how moving all that stuff around the planet, then throwing it away, is killing us all.

Update: Some thoughts on this in Le Devoir from William Shatner.
