Abstract or Introduction
Today, Ecology represents a global interest, a question of life and death of humankind and of the whole planetary system. It is the problem of problems and indeed the question that makes relative all other questions and constitutes the new radicalism as well as the actual core of human preoccupations.
Life is one, and human well-being is at its base interwoven with all life on earth and the rhythms of its systems. The suffering of one part means that all creation groans, and rapid global ecological change dramatically displays that suffering.
Today life seems easier with everything just a touch of a button away. We listen to music on swanky mp3 players, iPods, type out important documents on our PCs and laptops, watch movies and television on our brand new plasma or LCD screens, mobile phones, Air Conditions, Refrigerators and other electronic gadgets. However beneath the swanky surface of all this amazing, ‘cutting edge’ technology lies a dark reality called e-waste. It is very necessary to realize with ecological awareness that being fully human in 21st Century will require being intimate with the earth by caring.
