    or . . .

    is it saving ourselves and those other earthlings that are most vulnerable to the changes bearing down on us . . .

    sometimes i think we insist it's ALL man-made because if that's true, then we must be able to undo it and "save" the earth.

    those insisting it's cyclic seem to think that's an excuse to shrug shoulders. we had no impact on these changes, which happen every 10,000 years or 1 million years, so we can continue to rape and pillage the limited resources amid exploding populations and leave the toxic mess for the little people to endure.

    in the end, things will change. no matter how nature got us here . . . through her terrible human children or some cosmic cause. or a bit of both.

    what we need to understand is this: we will not undo it.

    we will have to learn to live in new environments. or perish.

    at least that's what i think.

      They cannot be saved if there is no ecosystem for them.
