Greed and selfishness are destroying the planet

Greed and selfishness are destroying the planet. The rich are getting richer and the poor are left behind. Business as usually is consuming fossil fuel at accelerating rates, poisoning our air, our water, and our land. Greed is aggressive selfishness, without concern for life on this planet. Unimaginable numbers of animals, large and small, are dying by fire in the massive bush fires in Australia, and many fish and whales are dying from massive amounts of plastic polluting the oceans. This is happening in large part due to global warming and greed. Big business and big government don’t seem to care. Everything and everyone are intricately interconnected in myriad seen and unseen ways. These interconnections are bonds. They unite us as relatives. Are we taking good care of our relatives? It seems we are going backwards, at least according to the news. Let’s do an about face, and propel love and compassion to go viral.
