What is this ‘all-is-well’ illusion that seems to have mesmerised classes and masses alike? While research continues to throw up the many harmful impacts of pollution, governments and other powerful stakeholders are still not convinced that pollution abatement measures are worth their while.
Ancient, millennia-old Harappan civilization collapsed in the space of less than a century. It was unable to take either corrective or protective action against climate change. Rivers dried up, weather patterns changed, agriculture seasons changed, while humanity was unable or unwilling to respond. What we see today is at a scale many magnitudes larger.
