Some might see the concern for the future world left for all our descendants. Some might think that an idea of the beyond is necessary for this. Let’s take a prominent example counter to this from a Dr. David Suzuki. He is a well known scientist and communicator of science to the Canadian public. Not only that, he is an activist. He has a great sense of humor too.
A broadcaster, a Canadian university professor, and an environmental activist. It has been said that he has no illusions about life and death and that on the scale of the cosmos the individual is insignificant. Yet, he has a concern for our environment. He is a living testament that shatters that minor undercurrent in Canadian culture.
He has a deep concern for future generations. This is shown in his concern for climate change. He does and has done more than most of us do. I write and I am part of some organizations. Some non-profits, Indigenous/Aboriginal and non-Indigenous/non-Aboriginal collaborative but my contributions so far are beyond compare to his. Suzuki writes and gets out into the public sphere. He uses his Democratic rights to advocate for prevention of the current climate crisis. So what does David Suzuki say about climate change? He views it as long-term weather patterns that are altered through human activity. I would add human industrial activity to specify a point in time.
David Suzuki is a brave person to speak on the nature of the Canadian justice system too when the country had the continuous decline in crime rates, the number of prisons were rising. He even expresses personal regret in the sense that he has contributed to climate change or global warming from his travels.
Here is an individual with a deep moral sense of ethical, environmental an social responsibility.
