There has been more advance in the last hundred years
than in centuries. At first they seemed wondrous, a
miracle as they helped us in multiple ways and most
eased our lives to some degree or another.
Yet all this technology and industry has come at a
horrendous cost to our planet putting it and us in
grave peril from pollutants that threaten to smother
us and our world to overheat and life as we now know
it to cease to exist.
It makes me wonder if we had known this would start
happening if we would have done things differently?
Sadly I think the answer is a resounding no! There
are many things that could and should be done but
governments and people are slow to respond caring far
more about their wallets.
We are lucky to have this wake-up call, it is time
to use it wisely. First we must stop the desecration
turning where possible to clean resources like wind
and water to supply our electricity. Petrol should also
be phased out along with oil we have other resources
that would be much kinder. I know, I know I hear you
But reflect a moment apart from your wallet which
you cannot take with you would it really cause you
stress or hardship? By cleaning up our act we would
be assuring the future of our planet and Not leaving
this mess for future generations to suffer and cope with
If there is anything left that is!
Nature is trying to warn us just stop a moment and
REFLECT. Think of all the natural disasters that have been
happening for the last 40 - 60 odd years and how much
more frequent they are and so much more violent than
in the past and I think the choices are clear.
