SARVEPALLI RADHAKRISHNAN ON SOLUTION OF HUMAN ENVIRONMENTAL PREDICAMENT

M. Yesupu, Prof. P. Chinnaiah

Abstract :

 

The paper presents an ecological frame to change the economic and social trends now deepening the human predicament, viz. overpopulation and continuing population growth, overconsumption by rich societies, resource depletion, environmental degradation, and inequitable distribution of wealth within and between societies. Certain points often overlooked include the demographic contribution to environmental deterioration; climate disruption, global toxification, and a decay of biodiversity and ecosystem services; and economic growth of the rich, which hurts everyone in the long term. Perpetual economic growth is biophysically impossible; the culture gap impedes solutions; and all the factors are intertwined. Potential solutions include empowering women and providing family planning services to all sexually active people; reducing overconsumption and helping the poor; overhauling education systems, including universities; adapting to changes that are inevitable; and improving food production and distribution systems. Hope comes from growing worldwide grassroots movements.
