We Cannot Eat Money.
As the indigenous population of the Americas watched European settlers repeatedly arrive, wave after wave, with an entirely different set of values, they watched their natural resources deplete out of ignorance and arrogance.
This is a proverb that has been circulating for decades, never more true than it is right now. The necessity for climate science and regulation of the industries that are destroying our natural resources in favor of profit could not be more necessary than it is right now.
I hope that America is wise enough to see this for what it is and to enable our government to act responsibly in this regard for the next decade, lest we find ourselves hoping to move to Mars out of desperation.
Earth is a true garden of Eden. A paradise to be treasured. Perhaps this is the moment when humanity wakes up and reverses the course of our collective damage?
I hope so! 🌈🌎 Happy Tuesday!
