An urgent responsibility

We need to consider how our actions, in affecting the environment, are likely to affect others. This is often difficult to judge; but it is clear that we are the only species with the power to destroy the earth. Birds and insects have no such power, nor does any other mammal. Yet if we have the capacity to destroy the earth, we also have the capacity to protect it. I believe we have an urgent responsibility to do so. Visionary words from HH Dalai Lama consistent with his words for decades on the urgency of saving our planet from human greed and short-sightedness.
