Ages of human history have often been named after the materials that our ancestors mastered at that time: stone, bronze or iron. If future archaeologists do the same for us, what material might they choose to define the 21st Century? Silicon? Plastic? Both are candidates, shaping the world for better and for worse. But if the decision were based on scale alone, then there can be only one answer: we are living in the age of concrete.
Concrete accounts for about half of all manmade things. There is so much concrete in the world that soon it will outweigh all living matter…..
Praise the Lord
