    In fact I was wondering if I wanted to write about the Environment day, but you have expressed the concern much better than I could have. Great!

    people often wonder what they can leave behind for their kids and grand kids – money, jewellery, sites, apartments, flashy cars and what not. but do we ever stop and ponder if we are leaving behind for them clean air, clean water, fertile earth that can yield healthy crop???? oh, where do we have the time to stop and think. we are busy planning a trip to Mars and Pluto – to spread garbage and pollution???? oh, no, please spare the other planets and allow them their pristine glory…….

    “Earth Song” Written and composed by Michael Jackson

    What about sunrise
    What about rain
    What about all the things
    That you said we were to gain…
    What about killing fields
    Is there a time
    What about all the things
    That you said was yours and mine…
    Did you ever stop to notice
    All the blood we’ve shed before
    Did you ever stop to notice
    The crying Earth the weeping shores?
    Aaaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaaah

    What have we done to the world
    Look what we’ve done
    What about all the peace
    That you pledge your only son…
    What about flowering fields
    Is there a time
    What about all the dreams
    That you said was yours and mine…
    Did you ever stop to notice
    All the children dead from war
    Did you ever stop to notice
    The crying Earth the weeping shores?

    Aaaaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaaaah

    I used to dream
    I used to glance beyond the stars
    Now I don’t know where we are
    Although I know we’ve drifted far

    Aaaaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaaaaah
    Aaaaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaaaaah

    Hey, what about yesterday
    (What about us)
    What about the seas
    (What about us)
    The heavens are falling down
    (What about us)
    I can’t even breathe
    (What about us)
    What about the bleeding Earth
    (What about us)
    Can’t we feel its wounds
    (What about us)
    What about nature’s worth

    It’s our planet’s womb
    (What about us)
    What about animals
    (What about it)
    We’ve turned kingdoms to dust
    (What about us)
    What about elephants
    (What about us)
    Have we lost their trust
    (What about us)
    What about crying whales
    (What about us)
    We’re ravaging the seas
    (What about us)
    What about forest trails
    (ooo, ooo)
    Burnt despite our pleas
    (What about us)
    What about the holy land
    (What about it)
    Torn apart by creed
    (What about us)
    What about the common man
    (What about us)
    Can’t we set him free
    (What about us)
    What about children dying
    (What about us)
    Can’t you hear them cry
    (What about us)
    Where did we go wrong
    (ooo, ooo)
    Someone tell me why
    (What about us)
    What about babies
    (What about it)
    What about the days
    (What about us)
    What about all their joy
    (What about us)
    What about the man
    (What about us)
    What about the crying man
    (What about us)
    What about Abraham
    (What was us)
    What about death again
    (ooo, ooo)
    Do we give a damn

    Aaaaaaaaaaah Aaaaaaaaaaah

  15. Sanjay M Says:

    Why do you want to redesign the world?

    Consider this: all the ants on the planet, taken together, have a biomass greater than that of humans. Ants have been incredibly industrious for millions of years, yet their productiveness nourishes plants, animals and soil. Human industry has been in full swing for little more than a century, yet it has brought about a decline in almost every ecosystem on the planet. Nature doesn’t have a design problem. People do. The endgame appears to have been to create a world in which we have no real idea of the effects of the chemicals we’re using, on us or the environment, combined with the large-scale and inequitable use of natural resources. But that was then – people thought they were doing the right thing. Today is another day.
