When we plant trees, a forest, a beautiful garden we become agents, good children of Mother Earth.
Robert's The Miracle, Joy and Art of Living,
Volume I - The Great Scene of Creation
Chapter 2 - Our Miraculous Planetary Home
It is incredible, albeit miraculous, what we human species have been able to do on this little planet! But now we must beware, for we are beginning to do some serious damage.*
we destroy 21 hectares of tropical forests
we consume 34,725 barrels of oil
50 tons of fertile soil are washed or blown off cropland
12,000 tons of carbon dioxide are added to the atmosphere.
685 hectares of productive dryland become desert
120 million dollars are wasted on military expenditures, a trillion a year
55 people are poisoned and 5 are killed by pesticides
60 new cases of cancer are diagnosed in the United States alone,
over 5000,000 cases each year with 20,000 cases leading to death, because of the thinning of the ozonosphere.
25,000 people die of water shortage and contamination
10 tons of nuclear waste are generated by 485 nuclear plants
250,000 tons of sulfuric acid fall as acid rain in the northern hemisphere, damaging lakes and millions of hectares of forests
60 tons of plastic packaging and 372 tons of fishing nets are dumped into the seas by commercial fishermen, killing thousands of fishes, sea birds and sea mammals.
Every five hours a species becomes extinct...

What greater thing is there for human souls than
to feel that they are joined for life
—to be with each other
in silent unspeakable memories.
~ George Eliot
