The Tao of the Carbox Tax
On the harmonious balance between man and nature
By Justin Hartfield
In the most literal sense possible- without the environment, human beings wouldn't exist. They couldn’t. In the same way that a coin must have both a heads and a tails, or a front must have an accompanying back, or a buyer must have a seller. One doesn’t exist without the other.
They are dependent on the one another for survival but on a deeper level, they exist for each other and because of each other. In fact, they are not two at all, but one.
“We are one, after all, you and I, together we suffer, together exist, and forever will recreate each other.” – Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, French philosopher and Jesuit priest
