I think the world is sinking

Yesterday a friend mentioned that he checked out a book from library 'The world is flat' and I quipped ..no..its sinking !
But then I realised its true...given the situation in China, Burma, Afraica .. the soaring fuel prices , the food prices , it does seem
to me that the world is sinking...and unless we take a consious step ...live more consiously this will just go on...
Do you feel the same way ? Are you doing something about it ?
