Enterprises TV Reports on This Changing Planet

We at Enterprises TV realize that the planet Earth is a living, evolving organism, it's not a dead rock that is locked in its final form.  Waterways change constantly.  Much of the Earth's crust -- the part we live on -- is always shifting.  But mankind comes along and builds expensive houses, office complexes or other structures right up against the water or on otherwise mutable landscapes, and then reacts with horror when the terrain changes of its own accord.  Recently, across the US alone, there have been massive mudslides, some of which have impacted dwellings and entire residential neighborhoods.  Wildfires threaten homes and businesses that have been built amid stands of trees that have been there for centuries or longer.  We've set up major cities right at the water's edge, regardless of the ebb and flow of the tides and the overall level of the oceans.

Enterprises TV observes that the Earth is changing, but we inhabitants are not.

The Enterprises TV show notes that the aboriginal natives have been telling our technological civilization for many years that we are operating out of balance, in conflict with nature.  Whenever our towns and cities are damaged by natural disasters, storms, floods, wildfires or the like, we insist on rebuilding there on the same spot.  There is a common maxim that is popular these days that defines insanity as doing the same thing over and over and yet expecting a different result.  Instead of arguing about climate change, shouldn't we be thinking about how we're going to deal with all of this?  Assuming things will not change has not worked very well for us thus far.
