Argentina to Chile (TransAndean Highway)

“Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment, but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet.”
Agent Smith “The Matrix”

Having travelled through most of the third world countries and noticed the pollution in the land that ultimately ends in the waterways and the sea, where every day, people struggle to obtain enough food to survive, it is understandable not to expect them to worry about pollution. It is a responsibility of First World countries to provide some incentives to reduce this contamination.
Instead,this countries are lining up with their treasure chest ready to buy third world countries remaining resources
Through good marketing we are being sold climate change as the most imminent danger to this planet where we are limiting the source of non polluted fresh water and poisoning our soils where food is grown with deadly herbicides and pesticides.
Drinking water come largely from plastic bottles and from boiling tap water where bottled is not available.
Long are the days where the water I drunk came from a spring in my father’s farm.
We allow for fishing fleets to catch every living creature in the sea and then we conform ourselves to eat fish grown in farms with the help of antibiotics and feed laced with chemicals.
It all sound depressing but it is very real. I am seeing it every day.
We live in times that we pay more attention on what we wear that what we feed our body with.
