When did we realize that the world was connected and our actions effected more people than we thought?

    I think that generations have always been cognizant about this notion. I feel like it’s been a recent event, however, that people have begun to take it for granted. Older civilizations have felt a kinship with nature, hence the idea of ‘mother nature’, but as the world seems to get smaller, as populations increase, as consumption grows exponentially, we have forgotten about this connectedness. Practices are no longer sustainable and are always at the expense of the environment or the established order. That’s not to say that earlier generations did not do destructive things, they absolutely have, but we have the resources now and the destructive tendencies to basically destroy the world we live in. Our hand will be forced by climate change but it’s a shame that something needs to force us to make the right change.
