How much are we quietly losing?

On a road trip to Mysore, I spotted this beautiful old house being demolished:

One can see the beautiful facade of the building (a porch was demolished some years earlier)…and the deer above the window.

We seem to be destroying so much…trees, our micro-climate, our water resources, our quality of life, in the mame of “development” which only seems to denote more roads for more motorized transport,or more buildings with glass and air-conditioning.

I wonder when we will reach the tipping point?
