Thoughts on how we treat our world

I read something this morning which really resonated with me. It was about how we treat our world. Each day we see more disasters occurring, not just in war zones but in our countryside where rivers are polluted, pipelines leak or explode, lakes are polluted and so on. Just this week in my area fish died because of river pollution. We see greedy companies wishing to destroy the landscape for new pipe lines, new railway lines which go through ancient forests and destroy natural habitats which have built up over the years for various species.

And do we just watch and think it won’t be long before the human race disappears or do we do something? If we do something then what do we do? Working together is important as can be seen when the Native American tribes came together to stop a pipeline being built across their sacred burial grounds. I am not going to write any more here because I would like you to read the words I read this morning so that you are aware, if not already aware, of just what is happening to our planet.

One thought on “Thoughts on how we treat our world

  1. I read the article and have shared it on FB. How, I wonder, can we – the ordinary people – fight against the few but powerful. It should be easy shouldn’t it? There are more of us than them. But it isn’t is it? It seems like there’s this huge unstoppable machine rolling over mother earth and those who love her and the more it rolls the more damage it does and the more damage it does the harder it will be to put anything to rights. Sorry – rambling 🙂
