Technopolitana Positivism

Is the fact that you are looking at this site positive?
 

The RSPB or Royal Society for the Protection of Birds in the UK now has over a million members. https://www.rspb.org.uk/about-the-rspb/about-us/how-the-rspb-is.../annual-review/

The Accord de Paris/ Climate Change Accord was signed on December 12, 2015. In its scale it is unprecedented, although it leant heavily on the Montreal Protocol of 1988 (with subsequent revisions) to prevent depletion of the ozone layer which was happening due to the release of gases detrimental to it.
Kofi Annan said that
perhaps the single most successful international agreement to date has been the Montreal Protocol. If the nuclear non-proliferation treaty is anything to go by this may be true & it's an environment related agreement.
We do have a climate change agreement and the US can't leave it until 2020 which will be close to the end of President Trump's first of two or last of one term/s.

The UNESCO biosphere reserve map http://www.unesco.org/mabdb/bios1-2.htm makes for good bed time reading for pessimists.

Whether claims to an 85% drop in plastic bag use in the UK, is true or exaggerated, the speed of public response has been significant. I see this as a key Technopolitana issue. Does the legislation merely make people yawn with resignation, or does it actually raise awareness?
Ask not to have a plastic bag or so many in most small food shops in the UK and you are looked at as a freak.  

http://plasticfree.co.uk/ is well worth looking at.

 Sunset or sunrise on a renewed planet? - Kincardineshire, Scotland, September 2017.
I wonder if environmental positivism can come from a big idea, namely that our relation to our home needs shifting.

We are here, the most dominant species by plunder, by migration, settlement, land change, invention. All resources in our own homes come from nature. We may invent chemicals. We don't invent the participant atoms from which they are made.
Thereby our home, the material building and the materials used to make it, come by being taken.
Should we be arrogant in that relationship? Or should we be grateful and humbled by what the earth has to give?
One home, its concrete, its stone or bricks, its wood, its tiling, its plastic or metal piping, its wiring, its furnishings, its insulation. Not much. Multiply by 3,000,000,000.
Should the wider home, the earth, come before its dominant species?

Is the root of environmental positivism in environmental respect?
