"Turn the earth upside down. Shake it and prod it till it loses all feeling and begins to cringe at the sight of you. Sign your own death warrant and write away any chance of survival of the generations yet to come."
This seems to be the motto unconsciously adopted by every individual on the face of the earth. However the silent sufferer, the martyr, in all this inconsiderate brutality is one everyone has seemed to take for granted, mother earth.
The earth has supported life since the beginning of time, when Daddy called it to be, yet man seems oblivious to all the love and care the earth has put into helping each one of her creatures grow and evolve. He has ruthlessly attacked the sanctuary she created for her children and has not once looked back to inspect the damage.
This breaks my heart. This irrevocable damage has occurred due to the exploitation of the earth’s resources and high population. Man’s greed has led him to tear down forests, reclaim land from the sea, contaminate once pure and refreshing water bodies, kill all innocent animals, leading them to extinction, all in an attempt to declare himself ruler of the world. He thinks of no one but himself and while decimating a ran forest or while mining in the most sensitive regions of the earth, self-centred man only seeks to fulfil his requirements and does not heed the poignant cry of the earth as he molests her.
Man cannot expect his actions to be without repercussions. As Newton’s 3rd law rightly states, to every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Thus when man conducts nuclear tests under the sea, he must be prepared to face the wrath of a tsunami. His sins will not go unpunished and the earth will lash her fury on man with vengeance if he does not come to his senses and ensure rapid treatment and rehabilitation for her.
This exquisite planet, the only one capable of supporting human life, has now obtained an expiry date and unless astute and able doctors come to her rescue, she and all her splendour will soon cease to exist.
