Planet Earth has some serious issues. The forests are disappearing at an alarming rate. Thousands of species go extinct each year. Pollution floats around the oceans and poisons the air. Natural resources are being depleted. Populations grow in places that can not sustain them.
We humans seem to have a problem accepting the obvious. We squabble over the uncertain and ignore the undeniable. We fail to solve the things we can. Deforestation could be addressed – but it is not. Overpopulation could be addressed – but it is not. We humans prefer dramas. We prefer to fight over petty issues. We want to feel good, not do good. We don’t offer sacrifice, unless it is the sacrifice of someone else. The earth has problems, and we aren’t helping, not even those who claim to care.
