My thoughts on the environment

We keep hearing people speak as if we humans decide whether our planet lives or dies.
I think not.

This planet has been around for almost 5 billion years. It has survived all kinds of disasters and carried life for hundreds of millions of years before the first human walked on it. We were not the beginning of this planet and we will not be the end of it.

It’s not about saving the planet, it’s a question of whether we can save ourselves and the environment we live in.

The dinosaurs could not, but at least that wasn’t their fault.
