Incredibly ironic that big business is telling us we need to fix nature. You bastards are the ones who gutted it for profit.


“For most of history, man has had to fight nature to survive; in this century he is beginning to realize that, in order to survive, he must protect it.” – Jacques-Yves Cousteau


It’s not going to be dead. It’s going to be much more unpleasant for us, and for many other species we like and/or rely on. When environmental rhetoric goes too big, people stop taking it seriously. The problem isn’t that we’re ‘killing the planet’. The problem is that we shit where we eat. We’re trashing the only home we’ll ever have. Corporations are leaving dirty diapers all over the kitchen and living room. And it’s going to take too long to ever clean it up. There’s a metaphor people can feel.


Its ironic that the leading cause of the destruction of nature is business.


I have a feeling this is inevitable. The greed of the powerful can’t be stopped in time. I think we are generally fucked. Sorry to be such a downer.
