I feel distressed when I see our assault on planet earth. But of course, our modern culture needs to do this for its own survival. We are like ravenous animals that simply consume, consume and consume. These terrible wounds on a living creature will heal as all living systems do for themselves.
But some injuries might never heal - we cannot see what we are doing underground. We do some mega meddling thinking we are clever. So far, we have managed to cope with the repercussions.
It fascinates me that we are focused on climate change and how we might be affecting that - we tax, have the Kyoto Protocol, and the greedy catch a ride on it too - good money making in climate change!
Where is the Protocol to limit the unseen damage we are doing deep underground, the doubts about fracking, deep mining and other attacks on our planet? Is there any attempt to control our rapaciousness?
We rely on the earth so completely for our survival, I don't know what the solution could be. We cannot go back - what does forward look like?
I think as our technology develops we will be able to do what we will consider wondrous things forgetting we are dealing with a living creature with whom we need to co-operate.
