Gross National  Happiness

Gross National Happiness

I found your letters to the editor and opinion page interesting last week. You had a letter pleading to spare the life of a forest – hoping to use preserving the water table for the aquifer to move people. I would like to add forest bathing, well-being, clean air, bird song, mushrooms, insects, frogs, squirrels, bears and butterflies.
On the same page is David Suzuki explaining that we have an economic system that leads people to think that large houses and cars are more important than the air we breathe, the water we drink and our well-being.
We need to turn in Gross National Product for Gross National Happiness like New Zealand and Bhutan.
