    As Detroit was mentioned in this thread, I would like to point out a building in Detroit that would make a very good preservation. Detroit Central Station. Here are some Pictures. https://www.bing.com/images/search?q...7F&FORM=IQFRBA

    The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant compared to the power of the Force.

    So apparently, every once in a great while, humanity can pay enough attention to scientists raising alarms to get off its *** and do something useful.

    We still have several dozen other areas where we're screwing up globally but I'll take a win when I can get one.
    "It is not simply enough to know the light…a Jedi must feel the tension between the two sides of the Force…in himself and in the universe."
    ―Thon

    "When to the Force you truly give yourself, all you do expresses the truth of who you are,"

    Yoda

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    John Rowlands, The Grey King by Susan Cooper

    "You come from the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve", said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth; be content."

    Aslan, Prince Caspian by CS Lewis

    Only when it presents an imminent danger to the interests of those in power. The ozone layer hole could have spelled doom for many powerful corporations and industry lobbies.

    That's an absolutely wonderful example, IMO. First... because, as I think we can all agree, it was a real thing which really showed that real human action could make a difference.

    There really was a hole, "we" saw that, and "we" fixed it. "We" continue to have many other problems, but we nailed that one. It's a proof of concept for more ambitious proposals.
