Mother Nature’s Revenge?

Leave a comment

What an amazing lesson we are living through in Europe. All our technology, all our sophistication is no match for Mother Nature in her fury. A volcano in a country of less than half a million people, a blip on the edge of the globe for most of us, has thrown the world into chaos. Isn’t it tempting to say that she is exacting revenge for what we are doing to her planet?

See how I rate the importance of the country by the size of its population? Bad. Of course it’s not just the people which make any part of this earth important, it’s the flora and fauna, the rocks and the waters, and everything else which goes into making this wonderful planet – but newsworthy – that depends mostly on people, until something like this happens.

We have been abusing our home, our host for far too long. If I were Mother Nature I’d be pretty cheesed off too.
