    Thanks for re-upping this with a link on the other site, @Joel Anderson. I have to simply make one tiny change..."complementary nature of opposites that may just be interconnected"

    It is all interconnected. Every single bee - each literal and metaphorical bee - has a part to play in each of these global environmental topics because we are all contextualized within the planet Earth's ecosphere.

    But here is the rub, as you rightly mention we are dependent on corporations to a tremendous extent to wake up and smell the humanity not the profits, but we've let them be exempt from concerns apart from increasing shareholder value EVERY 90 DAYS. Until we begin to challenge this concentration of financial and human capital within organizations more powerful than most governments, we are not going to stand a chance towards collaborating towards a sustainable future for the entire planet.

    Capitalism is swell to a certain extent, but when it creates entities that can decide to take over the world's seeds, or introduce endocrine disrupting plastics into baby bottles to increase profits, or bottle up the liquid elixir of life and in the process generate waste that will last for decades we have to ask when will we wise up and ask for these organizations to have oversight ensuring that they don't jeopardize the planets future? That has to be the definition of 'good' business.

    #4 You sure you weren't raised by hillbilly's in Oklahoma too? lol.. Sounds all too familiar from here. We used to swim in some snake infested, abandoned strip mines. Dive off of cliffs and bridges to hit a deep spot plenty deep but only about as big as a bathtub. Plenty of bumps, scratches and scrapes to go around, but we all survived anyway.

    Funny thing was, I was on a swim team as well, after the experience. Pools I have no problem with, its dark waters. I was basically swimming in a mud hole :-) An excavation that was abandoned and eventually filled with water. It was U shaped and the center of the U collapsed while we were swimming and created an undertow. If a friend of my sister's hadn't spotted me and come after me with a raft I wouldn't be here today. I was not the only one that got caught, but I was the last one spotted because I was on the shallower end of the U, but deep enough to drown an 8 year old. The water was clear until the collapse and then it did truly become a mud hole. We weren't supposed to be there.#3

    #2 Sorry to hear of your experience @Pamela L. Williams. I nearly drown myself as a boy in a motel swimming pool. Foolish enough to think I could swim when I had zero experience, I dove into the deep end of a pool with no one else around. Fortunately a slightly older boy who could swim was nearby. He saw me in trouble and hurdled the low fence and without a second thought came to my rescue. Poor guy, I darned near drowned us both I was so panicked. Later, determined to overcome my fear I took lessons and ended up joining the Jr' High swim team. Smartest thing I've ever done. As a result I ended up an accomplished scuba diver and have been privileged to dive both sides of Mexico and most of the Carribean Islands and a few of the Hawaiian. The silent beauty and proliferation of life is phenomenal You don't have to go deep you know. You can even wear a life jacket and snorkel the shallows. The experience really is worth the effort to overcome your fears.

    Exactly @Zack Thorn, I will admit; I am not a diver. After a near drowning experience as a child I have a fear of deep water but one of the reasons I love documentaries of the ocean is because that is my way of diving. Our oceans depend on these coral reefs for health and survival of all life from land or water#1

    If you have dived the reefs off Cozumel in the 70's and again in the 2000's and seen the deterioration caused by the oceans changing climate alone? You'll respect the coral enough to only touch with your dive knife and never damage or take trophies.
