This work looks at the amount of responsibility, or lack thereof, that our governments and selves take for the things and places that support us. The mighty dollar rules and the most essential elements of our environment are unprotected, damaged and vulnerable. In a time when we have so much knowledge, resource and ability, ignorance, indifference and greed are rampant. This is unacceptable.
