Whether you believe global warming is real or that we are closer to the sun because of the current astronomical cyclical positioning, one thing is for sure — we are destroying our environment.
In Coconut Grove that evidence grows daily. Unfortunately, voters, encouraged by politicians recently decided to destroy more waterfront to make way for another Bayside-type development
A few blocks from my house, a beautiful historical home was destroyed to put not two or three, but five homes on the small lot. Sadly, trees marked for protection seem to disappear daily and the ground is covered quickly to hide any evidence that a tree ever existed.
As neighbors we are upset, but what can we do when the builder is connected to the city?
Though this may be a lost cause, there are things we can all do. For instance, pay attention to what you buy, whom you vote for and how you live. Each of us makes a huge impact on our planet and collectively this impact is exponential. Also, don’t forget to look at your own footprint. With the holidays coming, it’s a good time to be cognizant. On a personal note if you like concrete, may I suggest another city besides the Grove?
