Recently, the unseasonal torrential rains across England and the east coast of U.S., as well as the heavy floods in Russia and Assam and mudslides and landslides in various parts of the world, suggest that the eco-system has been disturbed to an extent that the global warming, change of current streams and so on are impacting everywhere. No country seems immune.
The recent forest fires in Colorado in the U.S. suggest that forests have not yet been thinned, where there ought to be space between adjoining trees so that when a forest fire starts, it can be contained. Trees which are so densely close leave no choice but for the fire to spread on. There at least the training and deployment of more lumber jacks could be the appropriate action. It is a highly skilled job, taking a certain type of natural intelligence and co-ordination to do it safely. More people ought to be trained for this job, even in the Mediterranean countries, so the dreaded fires you read about during each summer could be avoided. If this task of "forest thinning" could be carried out before the hot summers, so much wealth of the forests could be safeguarded and preserved.
There is so much need for furniture in African countries like Kenya, so the wood can be utilised for that purpose. Jobs could be created in furniture making in Africa, where factories could be set up. The former colonial masters of such countries which could be helped could perhaps give a helping hand in such initiatives.
A world growth will happen with catering for the young and growing populations of the developing countries. They have the human capital, and young age groups, who need housing, schools, dispensaries, hospitals, roads, libraries, more electiricity to supply the demand which would be there. Eventually, they may be the ones working in the mature economies with aging populations. The world is in that sense one big family of God, whose joy it would be I believe if we all help each other and give a helping hand to spur further growth in the developing world. Western know-how, capital, large-scale implementation and management of work creation will help to harvest the wealth which exists in the world, and bring prosperity to more and more. If all this can happen in the midst of Peace, the benefits will be sooner for all the world.
