We must learn to care for our living planet
I FOUND the article by Kate Lock (A black day for bears, Sept 21), very depressing.
I am afraid to say over the last few years humanity has become selfish beyond belief. They could not care less about the future or what’s in store for the next generations so long as they’re happy in their own worlds.
Well, the Mayans or Nostradamus may or may not be wrong about the end of days on 20-12-12, but something is definitely happening to our planet and some generation in the future will suffer.
And I believe that war and the car have played a major part.
Some people believe that the earth is a living organism. Who are we to deny that fact?
Children should be taught to respect and love the planet from the day they start school.
If we aren’t careful, and it is true that the earth is a living organism, I think the day will come when the earth turns on us because it will have had enough of what’s being done to it.
