This week's question: From anonymous. “I was wondering what you guys thought of environmental changes that affect the future generation. In the podcast you’re suggesting filing a lawsuit against who wronged you is the method of control, but how can you find peace when they are no longer available? For example if no guidelines are in place for fishing or hunting and the population of bass or deer is wiped out how can the next generation who is now influenced find peace. Or if a transfer station is not utilized and a new homeowner finds tons of trash buried, oil leached, or pesticides on their land, how can the future stewards of the land deal with the mess. Although guidelines of how to dispose of waste or not over harvest are useful, if you look at the guidelines that adults should have 1800-2000 kcals/day how many Walmart shoppers are listening to that?
