Earth Day: The Inspiration of the Natural WorldEarth Day: The Inspiration of the Natural World by techgnotic
Since human beings harnessed the secret of fire the natural world has been seen by many
only in terms of how best it can be exploited of its abundant riches. It’s amazing now to
look upon the desert sands of the Arab lands and know that this place, the cradle of earliest
civilization, was once known as “The Fertile Crescent.” All Europe was once one great forest –

People don't have to care.
Until you die.
But dying is too easy.
