It seems like ‘closing the stable door after the horse has bolted’ but I wonder. Might it work? It’s very clear that most people have no interest in changing their daily life styles and business practices, so things are not going to improve any time soon.

      I posted a comment but above it is a line “waiting for moderation.” Thus, I am waiting until tonight because tomorrow morning I will be heading to the forest again for about one month with one break of travel to the marine site. Salam. Ating

        Hi Ating, I’m pleased to see that you are around. I will figure out how can I eliminate the necessity of approval comments from higher level members, like each of you. Interestingly the current framework does not always requires my approval when any of you send a new comment.
        Anyway, for how long time will you be away? I’d like to hear something about the idea of BA from you. Do you like it? Do you consider to participate as a founder? What do you miss? ….?????
        Best regards,
        Janos
