Mother Earth

My heart sorrows for the loss of biodiversity that we are witnessing.  The pace of that loss is accelerating aw we continue to over-fish, over-mine and over-burn fossil fuels.   We guarantee catastrophe by  creating artificial environments that are unsustainable.  They are foreign to the delicate balance of our natural world.  We are part of a single living organism, commonly called Earth.  She is Gaia, our Garden of Eden.  Doug Tallamy made a presentation earlier this year at the Earth Optimism Summit, entitled Bringing Home Nature which is highly informative about how we can go about saving our planet, by making changes in how we landscape.  Here is the U-tube link to his excellent speech.
