Nature's cry for help

The recent trend of abnormal weather patterns and the spread of pandemic-in-waiting avian influenza are just the stark reminders of Nature's cry for help. These are the grave consequences of Global Warming, and, with the ever rising of industrialization worldwide, they will only become more frequent and severe. We're witnessing the dramatic shift and diminishment of the entire ecosystem and we can neither escape nor deny its existence. We can't escape because we're living under its cover and every change to it will inherently affect our lives, such as the weather, and weather-induced disasters and health related problems. We can't deny it because it happens to our neighbors, be it a deadly landslide, or an extreme cold snap on another continent, or the asthma attack on Johnny, the kid next door.

If we don't wake up in time to save the environment, we'll only further alienate and expose the next generation to an eternity of greater risks, significant nature disasters, and the decimation of the ecosystem and its inhabitants.

By standing up for the environment, we may not enjoy much in the beginning but if it means for the survival of the next generation then it is all worthwhile.

Think about it, let's stop the infighting amongst humans and the clash of religions. Instead, let's concentrate on the rescue of the next generation.

Only God can save nature!

Hi, thanks for the comment.

However, I don't totally agree with you on that. God do not control our behavioural instincts. It is our behaviour that is threatening to the environment. God can't tell you not to drive a SUV or dump toxic waste into a river. God can't tell you not to buy exotic animals or recycle a pop can. To rely on God is irresponsible.

We're living under the same roof as all other species and, since we're the most intelligent species and on top of the food chain, it is our job to safeguard the survival and growth of other species. God doesn't do that.

God may respond to our inactions by nature disaster, but then again, that's just Nature's cry for help and a rude awakening for human beings.

No offense but your logic is flawed, irresponsible, in denial, naive and seriously doesn't make sense. Wake up and stop relying on God.
