We are the worst creatures on our planet. Sadly noted.

Sadly noted. Thanks, Cher. Quite the damning litany. Makes me want to howl...

I object to the implication that tornadoes, hurricanes, earthquakes, and wildfires are NOT man made. Yes, some would occur anyway, but human activity has dramatically increased both the frequency and the severity of all of these things.

It is sad to see them lay dead on the ground
