Last words on a TV show from 1969, commenting on the environment. As true then as it is now. Things slowly get worse, and we just slowly get use to not doing anything.

Indeed!
Lately, I've been noting how even the politicians who actually do want to do something are pussyfooting around all the interests that don't. As if economic issues, social issues, party issues and existential issues could be balanced, according to some formula of current priority.
"We'll worry about survival, once the tourism industry is out of trouble."
"We'll worry about survival, once the election is sewn up."
"We'll worry about survival, once we've settled the problem of who should be allowed to use which toilet."
