We must engage ourselves in a war against an enemy far more evil and destructive to life on this planet than random terrorism. The war we must win in order to survive long-term on Planet Eden is the “War Against Waste”.
At present we are wasting the future of all generations to follow. We are despoiling Planet Eden and wasting resources which God granted us to last until the end of time.
We are wasting fossil water and fossil fuels which took millions of years to develop. We strip mine and waste iron, aluminum, zinc, copper, lead, and other precious metals. We build beautiful buildings and then bulldoze them down along with the precious lumber with which they were built, on a whim. We leave our lights and heat and air-conditioning running when there is no need. We destroy and waste our forest resources. We pollute and destroy our rivers and oceans. We allow urban sprawl and blight to cover the land, replacing God’s Creation with a grid-locked wasteland.
We must stop the plunder and wage a war against the irresponsible waste of those precious resources which our children, grandchildren and all future generations will need for their very survival.
And never forget, “Humans, despite our artistic pretensions, our sophistication and many accomplishments, owe the fact of our existence to a six-inch layer of topsoil and the fact that it rains.”
