The sun, the moon and the stars would have disappeared long ago... had they happened to be within the reach of predatory human hands. ~Havelock Ellis, The Dance of Life, 1923
Everywhere we look nowadays there is distressing news about the state of wildlife and the habitats they depend upon. The oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico is just the latest of the events that have ravaged our earth’s wildlife and the habitats they depend upon.
There are other factors that threaten the health and viability of this planet’s wildlife:
- Global climate change - which among other effects has reduced the habitats of polar bears to ever more dangerous levels.
- Confiscation of land for deforesting, farming or other development - For example, the drastic changes made to the rainforest endangering some species of animals and rendering others extinct.
- Degradation of habitats - Pollution of the earth and it’s oceans threatens to suffocate and poison wildlife out of existence.
- Hunting of wild animals - Use of wildlife for sport, food, entertainment, clothing causes untold suffering.
Don't blow it - good planets are hard to find. ~Quoted in Time
Let us vow that this year - in 2010 - we will not allow this trend to continue. We must do all in our power to live our lives to decrease our negative impact on this planet including reducing or eliminating our dependence on fossil fuel energy. We must call upon our elected officials to represent our viewpoints by making the protection of the environment and animals of high priority. If they cannot or will not, then we must work to replace them with people who will represent us.
And not lastly....Let us purrrrrr
