The planet Earth will be here long after we are all worm food, and will be doing fine a few billion years after that. Its about making the environment around us habitable for the human race for just a little bit longer, and in the process, attempting to stop us from destroying ourselves and the other species that share the big blue-green marble with us.
It is really a “Save Ourselves Emergency”. Our family tries to live a sustainable lifestyle, so that we can learn the skills for this emergency, and be safe in knowing that we can help others should the need arise. Just like the boy scouts motto “Be Prepared”. At the same time, we are trying to build a sense of community in our area, but without much luck at the moment, but have started to meet like minded people and make friends. All worthwhile endeavours take time.
Here is some comic relief about the very subject; just be aware that there is some strong language in the video clip, but it makes a lot of sense.
