The Ecology Train of Our Earth departed in the 70’s, having had a good background prepared in previous years … It’s already 40 years that this train travels around our beautiful Earth, from city to city. Maybe something was really lost in recent years. THE TIME. Something that someone did not want to hear, did not want to believe. It was complex and very difficult this travel. And perhaps for this reason who was driving the Great Train of the Earth Ecology, has created synergic matters, to help understand the seriousness of the problem – so was created the Ecological Economy, Political Ecology … We arrived in Mexico now, Cancun, where in November 29th, 2010 was opened the COP 16, the World Conference on the Earth’s Climate. But let’s start from station to station.
George Perkins Marsh was the first environmentalist of the United States, lived in the 19th century. The son of a U.S. Senator, 8 years Marsh has had a problem with the eye that impeded him to read for many years. He has developed an exceptional memory for information accessed by others. He developed a love for animals, plants and nature. He became a philologist, scientist, an excellent organizer, businessman, lawyer, diplomat. In 1869 Lincoln appointed him U.S. ambassador to Italy, where Marsh died in 1882 in Vallombrosa in Tuscany. Being a man skilled in many fields, intelligent and a great observer, in 1864 published a book “Man and Nature” that the first was titled ““Man the Distructor of Natur’s Harmonies”, but the publisher chose the less radical way.
