There is only one earth…and by the looks of it, not much of the billions of people on the planet care much about it. It’s them…and only them.
Be it littering, smoke stacks billowing out pollution, cars roaring down roads in mass traffic jams, a lawn mower zooming across a property, exhaust from heating and power consumption released into the atmosphere…seems pretty evident…nobody cares.
When I was growing up, it was sacrilege to drop litter from a car. The person was thought to be from the underbelly of society to do such a thing. Today, ehhh…who cares…everybody does it…right?
Well…everybody may do it…but it doesn’t make it right. And, it is not right.
What is right is to think of the earth and environment around you, first…before you engage in anything that will affect Mother Earth.
It’s all we have. My worry is that we will go over the precipice of abuse, and there will be nothing to catch us.
Right now the arrogance of man is such, that we think, we can keep pushing it…and pushing it.
No one knows how far man can go with its abuse of the environment before it gives way and there will not be an immediate fix…nor a fix at all.
Temperatures rising…fires blazing…earthquakes and the like occurring. It is out of the ordinary.
If everyone would just do their part and not traverse around like you are allowed to do whatever, whenever with the planet. You aren’t allowed.
The planet is a gift…and we have been allowed to partake of it in farming, game and other means that have transferred themselves to grocery stores and dinner tables over the years.
We’re not allowed to degrade it..but that is where we are.
Now is the time to shift into reverse…and do everything in our power to change the tide of what has come upon us.
