We are hastening our pace to Armageddon
I AM becoming increasingly despondent about mankind's future when the following are considered:
Our atmosphere is but a thin skin around Earth and is vital for survival of all living things, yet every year we dump into the air millions of tons highly poisonous gases
Our seas are being "vacuumed" by seven-mile long nets, where the dwindling amounts of what we want are picked out and the rest thrown back - dead
Our seas are also being used as an infinite dumping ground where the increasing flotsam on the world's beaches bear testimony to our foolishness and greed

Our land is also being used as an dumping ground for man's waste. We can see even individual human's attitude to waste, where personal rubbish is left on picnic sites and beaches or just thrown out of car windows.
Our Earth is like an over loaded donkey cart where the Earth is the donkey, mankind is the driver and the load is our demands and expectations.
The poor old donkey is already over loaded but the driver keeps adding more to the load and then whipping the donkey even harder.
The greatest pollutant this Earth has to bear is mankind and, unfortunately, I believe that we have already sown the seeds of our own self destruction with Armageddon approaching with increasing speed.
Of course, the world's leaders would say this is negative thinking and will continue to tell us all the positive steps they are taking while conveniently, casting a blind eye to what is really happening.
The fact is we are suffering with human pollution and the world's population needs to be reduced.
However, we continue to live longer and while various religious groups, for their own selfish reasons, continue to advocate that couples should have, at least, five children then the chances of reducing, by natural means, the world's population down to sustainable levels is zero.
Meantime, our leaders will continue to tell us all is well until the dreadful day of reckoning arrives.

The Telegraph says
The American Indian proverb could not be more relevant: Only after the last tree has been cut down, only after the last river has been poisoned, only after the last fish caught, will man realise that money cannot be eaten.
