The environment, heal thyself

Reading this gives me hope, hope that maybe the environment can recover quite quickly but sad in a way knowing that we must do our part to help it. Sad because it is so hard to get folks to concentrate on the environment and do just a little goes a long way and that every little bit counts though some effort is required on our part to make it happen and not only us but the planet as a whole must participate and that is a chore in itself;

When it comes to environmental news, doom and gloom often rules the day. And it’s easy to get discouraged. But scientists from Yale University say most polluted ecosystems can recover in as little as 5 or 10 years.

The study means it’s not too late to turn things around if societies commit to cleanup, restoration and sustainability, according to Yale’s analysis of 240 independent studies. The findings appear in this month’s issue of the peer-reviewed journal PLoS ONE.
