We humans have an amazing capacity to adapt. Take Covid 19 for example; only months ago we were all in a state of panic over the impact of the virus, but now we just accept it as the way things are and we’ve started relaxing our behaviour even though the threat still exists.
The same is true of how most people are complacent about how human behaviour is destroying the habitats of all living things. We’ve been hearing about it for so long, it’s now just background noise. It’s only when we all personally begin to suffer the consequences in a major way that we will be shocked into doing something about it. Unfortunately, by then it will be too late.
Other countries and species are beginning to suffer already and Covid should be an alarm bell to wake us up to the fact that we need to make sweeping changes in behaviour and attitude. Earth is the only planet known to support life.
Let’s not destroy it.
