Biodiversity Threat

May 22, 2010

The threat to human existence by our waton destruction and pollution of natural environments is more severe than the effects of climate change, says a UN economic report.

Economic exploitation is already leading us to ruin. What we are doing to nature is so much worse. As we cheer on the destruction of retirement funds by corporate speculation, do we fund the destruction of the world that we rely upon?

There is no certainty in a future when greed dictates. Nature will overgrow our paltry efforts at self organisation and impose a far more brutal environment that no longer supports human viability.

We either act within the laws of nature or continue to believe in our fictions that make it seem logical to overpopulate, destroy species and burn resources. Nature is blinking in our brightness, but we are so very doomed if we think we can exist without mother Earth.
