Answering to Mother Earth

We are all fools!
Blinded with greed,
we rape the earth and declare ourselves its masters.
We glut ourselves with the riches,
cut the forests down like wheat,
and jingling our dollars.
We cannot hear the voice of intolerable unrest
within us.
The earth too has a voice
which someday we must answer.

- Frank Waters (1940)

Earth is always to be fair ... If we treat them well, he responded well too and vice versa!
People often forget about it ..... And already many examples, and always repeat ... Who is wrong?
