Nature / Human Impact

"Two things fill the mind with ever new and increasing wonder and awe - - the starry heavens above me and the moral law within me."  Immanuel Kant

Human activity and an ever-increasing population have already devastated much of our planet.  More and more species are becoming extinct every day.  Gone forever.  We must act now to save a Planet In Peril.

"In essence we're just a conceited naked ape. But in our minds we're some sort of divine legend. We see ourselves as some sort of god. We walk around the earth deciding who will live and who will die and what will be destroyed and what will be saved. But the fact is we're just a bunch of primates out of control."  Paul Watson 

"Animals are, like us, endangered species on an endangered planet, and we are the ones who are endangering them, it, and ourselves. They are innocent sufferers in a hell of our making."
Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson & Susan McCarthy
"The disastrous history of our species indicates the futility of all attempts at a diagnosis which do not take into account the possibility that homo sapiens is a victim of one of evolution's countless mistakes." Arthur Koestler, Janus: A Summing Up

“If all the insects were to disappear from the Earth, within 50 years all life on Earth would end. If all human beings disappeared from the Earth, within 50 years all forms of life would flourish.” Jonas Salk, biologist

Our tortured land: Humankind has already crossed the point of no return in the planetary disaster its behaviour is causing. Because of the overbearing pathological presence it has evolved into, the human race is a failed evolutionary experiment, has become a garbage species, taxonomically and in an obvious behavioural sense. Its mindless, runaway, now unstoppable reproduction has turned it into a toxic fungoidal mass ooozing over the planet destroying everything before it as it spreads.
