Humans were once just one animal kind among others. Now dominant, we rule. The quality of life on this planet is ours to decide.
We decide whether any animal or plant has sufficient habitat for meaniful survival. We decide whether any empty spaces remain, empty of our imprint. We decide whether there is any place free of our sound, our smell.
We are endowed with evolution's greatest achievement, the creative imagination. Yet squander our energies on obsessive denials, on endless tribal wars,on insatiable greed for power. This waste shapes the planet's future.
We are the world we inhabit. We decide all. Nature's us.
