    Just look at Russia post-communism – it had its merits. I suspect these lines would also correlate to CO2 emissions and consumption of vital natural resources strongly.

    Indeed there is a strong connection between pollution and poverty. Unfortunately the graph displays only areas of the world on which we have reasonably reliable data. It is truly harrowing what is happening where we don’t. But anyone who watches the news or reads the Economist will know.

    A great deal more attention to Shakespeare rather than advancing in wealth and luxurious living is necessary, but unlikely today.

    The quality of mercy is not strained.
    It droppeth as the gentle rain from heaven
    Upon the place beneath. It is twice blest:
    It blesseth him that gives and him that takes.
    ‘Tis mightiest in the mightiest; it becomes
    The thronèd monarch better than his crown.
    His scepter shows the force of temporal power,
    The attribute to awe and majesty
    Wherein doth sit the dread and fear of kings;
    But mercy is above this sceptered sway.
    It is enthronèd in the hearts of kings;
    It is an attribute to God Himself;
    And earthly power doth then show likest God’s
    When mercy seasons justice. Therefore, Jew,
    Though justice be thy plea, consider this:
    That in the course of justice none of us
    Should see salvation. We do pray for mercy,
    And that same prayer doth teach us all to render
    The deeds of mercy. I have spoke thus much
    To mitigate the justice of thy plea,
    Which, if thou follow, this strict court of Venice
    Must needs give sentence ‘gainst the merchant

    Greed pollutes one’s holy place,
    And envy is not a component part of grace
    The wealthy ye shall always have with you,
    Which problem resolves if we dare to imbue
    Freeing monetary abundance upon all
