Destroys the environment as you know it, perhaps. Don't worry. Other lifeforms will fill the void. You're no less dust in the wind than any other.

After destroying most of the living things and most of the life sustaining things on earth which took millions of years to come into existence, it is ridiculous to talk about creating human colonies on planets where there are no animals, trees, air, water and fertile soil........And where Temperatures are very different from earth.

I AGREE!!!!!!! :mrgreen: :lol: =D> \:D/

Me too! If we cannot figure this out here .... and this is surely our testing ground ... where can we figure it out?

Found..............

The Ecocidal Syndrome

Psychotic

in the last years
of life on Earth,
humans clung tight
to multiple delusions,
grimly unaware
of their own
commercially driven
predator instinct
blindly pushing
with ecocidal greed
their self-extinction,
all but the few
who bravely insisted
they expose reality,
though coldly ignored
or slyly compared
to crazy extremists
by the corporate media,
when it was over
and all lay dead,
there were no people
alive to remember
anyone ever existed.
John Talbot Ross, and another of his poems....

NO ESCAPE

Nearly every day
I happily try to be
that helpful friend
my neighbors allow,
yet I am haunted
by the impending
worldwide calamity
they dare not comprehend,
the hedge corrupted lending
for rampant deficit spending
on sprawling commercial growth
for executive wealth and power
they can well afford to extend
by ignoring the tons of rubbish,
junk, sludge, smoke and fumes,
that vast and festering blend
in growing mountains of landfill,
swirling patches of plastic ocean,
freshwater lakes no longer fresh
and a jet-exhausted atmosphere
over the haze of big city smog
all dissimulated not to offend
the billions of hardworking but
ad-driven and credit-addicted
trash-dumping shoppers who
with their corporate suppliers
imagine a great future when
as part of the growing trend
their dreams forever expand
to outer space adventures,
while this life-supporting
planetary biosphere
they barely know
and fail to defend
shrinks and slips
into the toxic
self-extinction
of its over-populated,
garbage-choked,
ecocidal
end.
From; If Saving Earth
http://www.angelfire.com/va/jauntyalbatross/
and "When the well is dry, we know the worth of water". BENJAMIN FRANKLIN, (1706-1790)
plus:
Research from Murtaugh and Schlax at Oregon State University shows that a hypothetical American woman who switches to a more fuel-efficient car, drives less, recycles, installs more efficient light bulbs, and replaces her refrigerator and windows with energy-saving models, would increase her carbon legacy by 40 times if she has two children.

I'd rather embrace destiny than lie to myself up to the point of it blindsiding me.

i think that the man repair the things which is make by a man...but man cannot repair the nature.i think that those things which are done by the nature the human does not do this so the other things like a forest and the other things these are create by a nature not a human.

Well. at least we are being honest. But we don't know what our destiny is. And we are ALL dust in the wind anyway. It has taken us a long time to get here. Why not continue? .... There is no reason.

And this new book on the insane rush to deplete it all, dam the pollution, full speed ahead.

Continue to be dust? We don't have a choice in the matter.

Society, in terms of size and/or density, certainly affects the minds of those present. Surely you'll find a few here that agree on negatively so as either increases. Destroy the mind, however? Probably not so much.

We can remain congealed dust for as long as we can. \:D/
