    Our careless stewardship of the planet reminds me of a teenager's reckless feeling of immortality.

    We are destroying our planet while under the influence of greedy corporations.

      we are destroying our economy - e.g. 70% of people from Missouri said this summer's drought made them rethink climate change's impact on weather and crop production

      We are increasing loss of human life here and abroad - hurricanes and sea rise in the U.S. Gulf states, as well as inundations of large portions of Bangledesh and SE asia, are going to kill people - lots of people

      We are increasing the chance of global instability - famine, crisis, and loss of life and wellbeing is a well known generator of people willing to die fighting for their lives.

      I'm all in for mother earth - but if human's aren't in for mother earth, she won't be on board for us and all the natural resources we feel entitled to .

      I hate hate. I love the look in peoples eyes when they realize, for the first time, that they have power.
