We are in the sixth great extinction in the history of our planet, and the first one we can look at and place blame on ourselves. Diversity of life is
disappearing at and alarming rate, but most people don't notice the death of a small coral reef, or when the frogs stop singing at night.
A silent spring is upon our world, and I don't see a way to stop it. If a pile of straw is on fire, do you just grab a handful that is only scorched
at the edges to save?
We screwed up in the eyes of some, to others we are the most successful species on the planet. Sure, we're short sighted because of our lifespan, but
most people don't care about a beautiful snow leopard disappearing due to habitat loss if that habitat is feeding people and providing them a place to
live. We are as much a part of nature as everything else, but we adapted while other species didn't.
So long, and thanks for all the fish.
