It comes as no surprise that environmental protection is having only limited success. We live in a world that is ever changing, and mankind thrives on progress, so standing still is not an option.
Whilst efforts have been made to protect wildlife, landscapes and ways of life, these continue to be eroded and lost due to man’s insatiable appetites and their decline has only been slowed not stopped.
The recent Environmental Growth Strategy devised in Cornwall acknowledges that change happens, but tries to influence economic activity so that it can flourish and provide a healthy and sustainable environment for all.
This is a great leap forward taken by public and private sector that will benefit everyone. It should be a role model for all. Change will go on, but at least it will be for the benefit of all living things on our planet.
