This video came across my Facebook newsfeed a week or so ago. I couldn’t let it go without passing it on to you.
It’s only two minutes of your day. The views are majestic and the message is timeless.
By now you have figured out that I care about Earth as Earth cares about me. And it does care. It gives me water to drink, food to eat and forests to hike and run through. It gives me the company of animals, though some of them would rather eat me than keep me company. Nature provides. It gives us all we need to survive. It’s been preparing for us for a long time. It’s been here for four and half billion years – 22,500 times longer than us. I’m guessing it’ll be here that much longer after us as well.
And I wonder what kind of world are we leaving our children, our children’s children?
We are the ancestors of the future.
I’m all for looking for other planets. I’m all for looking for life beyond our own Earth. I’m all for colonizing other planets should we find one suitable and develop the technology needed to get there. I’m NOT for destroying the only planet habitable to us. I’m NOT for all the garbage and litter and waste and pollution.
Like the video said, Mother Earth has starved creatures greater than us. I have no doubt she’ll do just that should we stay on the wasteful path we’re currently on.
Rant over, thank for watching and listening 🙂
