I don’t understand people who refuse this simple fact. The planet is dying and we are responsible, each and every one of us. No-one is excluded.
Humans are a plague, and there is this quote that perfectly describes humans:
When I tried to classify your species and I realized that you’re not actually mammals. Every mammal on this planet instinctively develops a natural equilibrium with the surrounding environment but you humans do not. You move to an area and you multiply and multiply until every natural resource is consumed and the only way you can survive is to spread to another area. There is another organism on this planet that follows the same pattern. Do you know what it is? A virus. Human beings are a disease, a cancer of this planet.
When you take the time to think about it you will find its very true.
This did not start today. Our incessant need to be comfortable is destroying this rock we live on. From drilling the land for minerals, drilling the oceans for oil to industrialization and automation polluting the atmosphere.
Wherever there is human presence, there is usually, in most instances, a disruption of the ecosystem. Animals are going extinct bit by bit because we keep encroaching in their habitats.
Global warming, El nino, drastic changes in seasons. All a result of the effects humans on the planet.
Have you ever wondered why scientists keep looking to the stars and other planets? Why they’re looking for ways to make Mars habitable? They have realised that in a certain number of years, Earth will no longer be able to sustain life. So they utilise so many resources focusing outside instead of dealing with the problem right before them.
Yes measures are being taken to try and alleviate the damage. However the problem is it’s just a select number of countries trying to fix a global problem. To have any hope to even try to begin to fix this ALL countries of the world need to come together and work at this.
This would then entail those countries whose forefathers stole from other countries to assist the ones they crippled. Because the reality is not every country is fortunate enough to carry out these measures all on their own.
So to the world, let’s come together, forget all the illusions that divide us, remember we are all children of our Mother: Earth, and work to heal her.
Hoping for a better planet for our children and their children’s children…
