Dying Planet

The pipeline that ruptured and dumped oil into the Yellowstone River has renewed my profound feeling that we are simply killing this planet, and for what? We are living more elaborately and comfortably than ever, for a longer time, in vastly greater numbers, and are killing the planet upon which we live in the process. Even when we recognize the damage that we are doing to this Earth we call home, we do not pause to consider that we might need to adjust our manner of living in any fundamental way. My suspicion continues to grow that we may have less time than we think.
