What have we Done?
There is an animation called ‘Man’ by Steve Cutts, http://www.stevecutts.com that accurately sums up Man’s impact on planet Earth. This three and a half minute video is possibly the most damning portrayal of our abuse of the planet, its animals and its environment, for our own selfish gain. See for yourself:
What Will We Do?
It is up to man, (humans), to make reparations for the mess we have made of the Earth. Our planet cannot take any more of our unconscious polluting, killing, abusing or selfish lifestyle that we have adopted through all human history. We have become parasites, and when parasites are too numerous, they kill the host, which in this case, is the supportive, biodiverse ecosystem that gives us life. Earth.
The Gaia foundation commissioned Steve Cutts to produce this short animation as a wake up call to all of us on our constant demand for material goods. The lesson is clear…it might already be too late if we do not wake up! We must reduce our demands and our waste. See for yourself:
And, one of the biggest problems we have, is the sheer numbers of humans on the planet. If we are going to survive as a species and still continue to grow our numbers we really need to look at our eating habits, because our food choices are actually making the planet evolve to one that will no longer support life as we know it! It is sick, the temperature rising, and we are not doing anything to make it well again.
