Noise Pollution and Compassion

“There is nothing amazing about being rich or highly educated; only when the individual has a warm heart do these attributes become worthwhile.” – The Dalai Lama

I have seen difficult or protracted noise pollution problems resolved, or moved toward resolution, when the noise producer recognized the impact caused by their operations, listened to or acknowledged those afflicted by their noise emissions, and from that awareness, worked to change the situation and prevent future occurrences.

When the noise polluter refuses to fully acknowledge the problems they create and refuses to listen to those they affect, the result is that suffering continues.
