“Paradise lost” is an epic poem by the 17th century poet John Milton (published in 1667). The poem concerns the Biblical story of the Fall of Man and their expulsion from the Garden of Eden.
Climate change, overpopulation, growing poorness, air pollution, disappearance of the ozone layer…..always just more problems. It is our expulsion from the Garden of Eden in the 21st century.
How can we rescue ourselves in case of a rise of the sea level. Is the construction of houses on stilts a solution? The problem is merely shifted as long as man will not abandon his materialistic mentality for a more modest lifestyle.
