Wasting resources just to make a building site look pretty

This for me instantly says a waste of Earth’s precious resources and more pollution but then I always look at things in terms of environmental impact and at least over medium time scales of hundreds or thousands of years. That may sound like an eternity to some but even a thousand years is a blink in geological time. If we look at human history though it has been the last 200 years plus that we have really started to mess things up. Certain things exemplify the fact that we either haven’t got a clue what we are doing to the planet or we just don’t care. While a group of people must have sat around and thought up this idea of making the hoarding of a building site look pretty they must have been as far removed from thinking that it was in any way detrimental or wasteful of resources as could possibly be. That’s the biggest problem to overcome. People for the most part live in very small bubbles. If the material for these hoardings caused a large hole to be dug outside their dwelling or the burning of these panels at the end of their short life filled their lungs with acrid smoke they may have thought differently of the whole idea in the first place. Professional people may have all sorts of qualifications but that still doesn’t mean that they are “Earth wise”. Something we need to rectify if we are to have any chance of solving the problems that we ourselves have caused.
