“Would be nice for balance to see an article with the 10 industries that will gain more jobs, or 10 new industries. Since the 90s there have been more jobs created than lost, but most of those jobs require training or college education.”

“It is important actually. The way that we think of ourselves in the place we live in changes how we do things in our everyday life.
For instance, Christianity is based on god creating man as an image of itself. If you notice, before the renaissance, all paintings were of humans in the forground.

Because their belief system was more of mankind as part of this huge system of nature and energy.
On the more scary side. If you believe that the rapture will happen within your lifetime, then your attitude towards conserving the planet varies greatly. But if you think of the planet as being sooo old, and our place in this earth to be this evolving role that's been going though millions of years, and HOPEFULLY millions of years more. Then your attitude towards the planet's resources and all non-human beings changes.”
