To appreciate nature and our surroundings and have an understanding of our own relationship with it, and the "importance of it", has been a way of life to some of us instilled over centuries to each generation! Plus I enjoy being a woman. So I was tired of this Question always being at the top of my page when I log in, and guessed I just had to answer! Save the Planet, save the whale, save the dolphin ... perhaps all just too little, too late.
Everyone with an age and an amount of understanding, has a view as to what is happening and what will happen, in and with this Planet. Some don't care, and won't care. Others do care, yet are not interested in "freaking out" and becoming 'Greenies'. What we have, is a situation which is irreversible. It is like trying to put the 'bolted brumby' back in the coral, and there's not a chance. What makes you think that enough people to give a hoot, could prevent: reverse: stop: hinder: that which is inevitable?
All are free to choose how to think, and respond. I'll continue to live my life with love and respect for nature, but I have no intention of jumping on some row boat of 'Green Peace". The Ocean Liner of disregard for nature and the results of it, has been full speed ahead for too long. Save The Planet and all such notions, may be admirable passtimes out of guilt for not having cared enough in the passed.
Technology and Progress will continue to be what it is, and increase faster than the differance enough to give a hoot could make. Thank you for the opportunity for my thoughts on the subject to be shared.
