Because we’re in denial. We don’t believe what we see. We think we’re invincible. Silly humans hoping that everything will be back to normal soon enough.
But we can’t afford to wait any longer. Typhoon Haiyan ravaged the country. Now El Niño is making our lands scorching dry.
Time for change. Yes, change is difficult but not changing is fatal.
Push for renewable energy. Promote ecological agriculture. Re-use. Recycle. But before that, reduce waste by not giving in to consumerism. Plant a tree. Live simply. Be environment-friendly. It’s common sense. It’s that easy. Or just a little effort, really.
I sure wish Leo’s sensibilities rub off on us all.
