Today is Earth Day, the day we celebrate how lucky we are to be on this one beautiful, hospitable planet.
I can find nothing positive to say. There are so many “open-minded” people who care nothing about the environment, the nonhuman animal life on the planet, or the future. They get out of any responsibility by saying that scientist’s claims are lies or “Oh, it’s not that bad.” Fine.
To all of the open-minded people out there: those kids you claim to love so much? We’re going to leave them an unspeakable future. Look around you right now-things aren’t exactly lovely. With the way we’re living, it’s just going to get worse. And how about your grandkids and your great-grandkids? With any luck, you’ll be dead before they’re born, so you won’t have to face their hatred as they struggle with each inhalation, pulling contaminated air into their damaged lungs. You won’t have to watch them drink filthy water, or see the illnesses that result from living like that.
Happy Earth Day, indeed!
