Bleak Prophecy

Only when the last tree has been cut down,
Only when the last river has been poisoned,
Only after the last fish has been caught,
Only then will you find money cannot be eaten.

  1. hmmmm . . . so interesting. never thought of it like that. i was driving through a wooded area recently thinking, “man there are so many trees just in this little area.” then it made me think how many more there are in all the other “little areas” that make up this big world. but then i thought about how many of those areas we’ve cleared and wondered, “when will it stop?”

    that’s why i love the use of bamboo for furniture and wood floors, because it grows so quickly and can replenish itself more readily.

  2. I’ve seen that quote before and appreciate seeing it again. I fervently wish that more folks would read it and think about it. That time is rapidly approaching.
