When you look after the land and animals, humans thrive but if you destroy trees the earths lungs that affects everything when you choke the ocean with plastic and murder all the sea creatures, you kill us, because the ocean feeds the planet..
Globally 85% of the earths forests have been destroyed... the situation has gone way past critical... It is another subject. I know The Pope is hysterical about it, Prince Charles too, and any other environment watcher.
Just about every young person in India are HYSTERICALLY worried about the lack of forests... If we don't change our behaviour very, very quickly, no ones family will survive anything.
Canada chops down a lot of trees for resource industries. But, we replant them. Most countries don't bother, which is why we have climate change. Forests, especially tropical rain forests absorb C02.
It's so critical now, it is probably passed too late.
God made volcanos for a reason,... they were to keep the trees healthy... now they're gone, there isn't much left to soak up volcano CO2 emissions.
When I show people google earth maps, they can see for themselves how critical it is.
Australian farmers won't be fucking happy until they've ripped out every mature tree from the coast to the desert. .... then they cry about droughts and floods.
Anyway... it's in God's hands... if he wants his planet fucked up, so be it. I have to switch off mentally worrying about it. I know I replanted trees 35 years ago. I did my bit for the environment.
