Crisis

In the middle of Western Sahara desert, where no water, no trees, no animals live but a bunch of refugees, struggling in poverty to survive the harsh habitat, the least of the problem one might face is the environmental crisis.
But indeed it is here that emerges the common cause to the world modern sickness : poverty and environmental crisis are two sides of the same coin:
“We have to ralize that the water crisis, that the environmental crisis, it is not a "cause", the "cause" is the civilization model we built and what we have to change is our way of living ! Development cannot be against happiness, it has to be in support of human happiness, of love on earth, of human relations, for taking care of children, for having friends, for having the essential ! When we fight for the environment, the first environmental element we have to protect is called "human happiness" !” - Pepe Mujica
