I wish I believed otherwise, but, I doubt it.
The people of this planet are not prepared to make the changes necessary to avert this environmental meltdown. By the time we lose say, 50% of the
species on our planet, people will start to wake up, however, it will be too late by then. Essentially, at this point, there is a very good chance
that the food chain will be broken in too many places. Sure, life will go on. This planet and some of its most hearty and adaptable species will
survive. But, it is all most inevitable, future generations will no longer be able to witness the level of biodiversity observable on this planet
today. Instead, they will only be able to read about it in books or watch movies about it. They will wonder how we let this happen, how did we let
our greed get the better of us? And what will upset them the most is the fact that we today, have the technology to prevent this from happening, yet
in the end, we will have been too slow to act.
By the way, I pray I am wrong.
I often see the double think and hippocracey present in some people. On the one hand some will tout how religious they are while at the same time
support a candidate who thinks we should "drill baby drill" and thinks that man made global warming is still up for debate. Don't they realize
that they are going down a path that leads to the ultimate destruction of the world God has created for them???
