Factor in City Assessment
An ordinary person needs to live in healthy environment with free
pollution and life threatening diseases.
It never occurs that few generations had actually exploiting so many
resources in very short time as happened in the last 100 years.
Environmental defenders are striving to protect, preserve or restoring
natural environment. They may see a threat in globalization or
exploitation of certain resources (e.g., the Amazonís forest in Brazil,
the ever increasing fear from utilizing the Atom Power in conflicts).
We certainly live in the era of
loss and destruction); global warming; negative social effect and high energy
consumption of suburban sprawl, species extinction, bad effect of soil
erosion and other human developments that disrupt ecosystems (e.g.,
coral life) and urban air pollution to mention the least.
Industrialized Countries and every Country has moral obligation to
contribute to the Nobel cause of preserving our Planet. Bad exploitation
of our earth resources is a burden for every one. It is not healthy to
blame each other instead of mobilizing our resources and energy. Coming
closer to nature is far more important than destroying it. It is through
awareness and eagerness to live in harmony with nature that we all and
each can preserve the earth.
InterConsult21íscale for Environment Awareness varies
from -5 (for a City that permits the destruction of its natural
resources out of ignorance, awareness or deliberate abuse of its
environment) to 5 (for a City with awareness, conscious society
responsibilities and well preservation plans for its environment).
