The sheer magnitude of humankind's crime against humanity and humankind's crime against Nature is so vast that it really is impossible for any individual to get their mind around the idea. Consider this one subject: humans have transformed the oceans into a toxic sound of indestructible plastic.
Listen to Dr. Charles Moore and look at the horrific photographs of our planetary scale floating landfill:
If you want to learn more about the scientist and his research:
What of the Sixth Great Extinction, provoked by humankind and ultimately including the Homo sapiens among its victims?
Read these reports and contemplate the consequences:
It seems that humankind is at war with Nature and every living thing. We've trashed the living Earth and destroyed our species' future and provoked climate change of sufficient severity to eradicate civilization and left such a horrendous mess that the Homo sapiens cannot possibly avoid extinction.
If humankind were to read this message today and respond globally to the crisis the outcome would still remain the same: Too little, too late, too bad for humankind.
If you want a fairytale ending you'll have to seek consolation in the writings of the conservatives, libertarians and scientific fiction technology worshippers. All of these people entertain various delusions about humankind's future which are also accepted widely by the popular culture as an item of blind faith in humankind's ability to adapt to every circumstance and invent our way out of every problem.
But there is no fairytale ending for humankind.
I saw something disconcerting and depressing today:
While I fully expected to hear Senator Inhofe spread lies and disinformation about climate change what was distressing and depressing what the revelation that this man is advocating the trashing of the planet while he has grandchildren who will inherit this mess and associated horrors from him.
Either Senator Inhofe is blind and deluded about the consequences of pollution or he lacks morality and a conscience. In either case he will likely live long enough to witness the end of the civilization which has trashed the Earth and tranformed the only living planet in the Universe into a toxic polluted wasteland.
There's no happy ending to the human story. Humankind was a tragedy from the very beginning and humankind shall always remain a tragedy until the bitter horrific end.
What is a living planet worthy, anyway?
Species that don't value their own survival go extinct in the worst possible manner.
