You can be more specific and pin it to certain groups who are so power-hungry they will destroy the future for the rest of tomorrow's population. It
isn't all of us to the same degree. The ones who are responsible for the oil spills and nuclear waste catastrophes are those greedy higher ups. It is
worth mentioning that most of us do drive or use plastic products.
But, I didn't have a dang thing to do with any decision made that resulted in those problems, and neither did you...
We're all responsable , the human race.
Those responsable directly, and those indirectly.
The bastards from Exon and BP and Shell and all the power companys who dump crap in seas and pollute the skies and poison the earth.
Those who drive cars, motor bikes or any vehicle that pollutes although transport is a necessarily evil.
And finally ..we.
Those of us who have sat back for the last decades watching all this going on, turning a blind eye, turning over the tv when another oil spill comes
on, skipping it over in the news papers to get to the sports pages.
We are all just as guilty as our doing nothing to prevent it has let it happen.
What can we do you ask...and i have no answer for you.
But while there are those that could have done something and have done nothing amonst us, the we are all to blame as the human race.
It is OUR planet.
No man is an island,
Entire of itself.
Each is a piece of the continent,
A part of the main.
If a clod be washed away by the sea,
Europe is the less.
As well as if a promontory were.
As well as if a manor of thine own
Or of thine friend's were.
Each man's death diminishes me,
For I am involved in mankind.
Therefore, send not to know
For whom the bell tolls,
It tolls for thee.
JOHN DONNE - MEDITATION 17, 1624.
