“So many of us were distracted by wars and greed that we didn't see how so many of the problems on the planet were interrelated with the changing climate.”
We were slow to start and spent too much time fighting about who was more responsible and how much each country should do. So many of us were distracted by wars and greed that we didn't see how so many of the problems on the planet were interrelated with the changing climate.
I tried to find the best ways to pull people together to see that all members of the human race just wanted peace, enough food for their families and shelter. As one species we treated the planet as if we were the exception and exempt from living responsibly with all living beings. I hope we can discover and live by these simple ideas of equality and inseparable interconnection with all of life; with a sense of care for "all" the grandchildren, not just "my" grandchildren, for all of the species, not just homo sapiens in time to make difference.
So sorry you will have to live in the wake of our selfishness!!
