I have no intention of wishing anyone at this time of year a merry this or a happy new that or a jolly anything else.
If there is one message that I would wish to offer as 2015 draws to a close, it is this:
There is nothing in what we have done over the past year
to be merry, happy or jolly about.
We have messed up.
We have begun to realise that we have messed up.
Yet we continue to mess up.
We have over-developed our world economy
We have over-populated our planet
We have overshot all relevant environmental limits
All of this is encapsulated in a book of stunning photographic evidence of our progress titled ‘OVERdevelopment, OVERpopulation, OVERshoot’.
The book is freely available for online viewing and I offer a link to view it in its entirety here as a seasonal gift to you:
