Damn you made me cry again Gavin! All those people killed for protecting humanity against itself; and for protecting the environment, not because it was economically valuable or an asset but because we can't, literally, live without it. Maybe one day we'll grow up and build monuments to them and the species we've wiped out.Another great post thanks :-)
Cheers CW. It had the same impact on me. These people were true heroes, not like the false sports heroes and celebs that people worship.Gav
Take less - give more and be proud of it.
Doesn't matter how many times I watch it, it never fails to move me.
Oh my goodness - goosebumps - I will share this on facebook and on my blog. Thanks so much Gavin.
i was flabbergasted when a friend of mine said they were going to see christopher monckton!!(sp?).. i had previously assumed she believed in climate change.. my opinion is regardless of climate science we should do the right thing environmentally and ethically.. the vid was a reminder... so beautiful and so very sad.
Hi Tiffany. Yes, it truly amazes me that some people still have their head in the sand.Gav x
the earth will long outlive us, just as she long outlived the dinosaurs
That is correct Anon. However her capacity to support us will not a given, just as it was after the asteroid hit Earth 65 million years ago. It was a pretty shitty time then as well, just ask the Dinosaurs. Oh, that's right, they went extinct, just like we trying to do to ourselves. Is that a good thing? Who knows.
I agree, it is humanity and other species that are in trouble, not the earth itself. The way that nature has reclaimed the Chernobyl exclusion site is testament to that.
