wangari_engesethDid meet Nobel Peace Prize winner and Professor Wangari Maathai at a small exclusive lecture last week (se photo). She was excellent, and delivered so many points that they could like trees grow into a forest of green consciousness. Here are some of here best points:

We live on a planet that has “naturally” its limitations.
Conflict has and will start when we fight over resources.
Peace comes with equal resources.
The planet will adapt as it always has adapt (the problem is us, Homo sapiens).
Solution way: Reduce and recycling.

What I wanted to ask here (but did not) was this:
Titanic was wrong constructed, just like our civilization for nature. Do you think its a good point to plant trees on Titanic?
I think she would answer: Yes, it would give people hope and in worst case people can build raft and boats of the trees to save them selfs, when Titanic no longer is safe.

It is a bit cynical of me, but since she planted hope into our minds and we live in a society that is for Mother Earth “wrong” constructed we need to adapt, reduce and recycling even trees on Titanic.

The seminar was arranged by Green Cross and Rewir.
