"God has cared for these trees,
saved them from drought, disease,
avalanches, and a thousand tempests
and floods. But he cannot save
them from fools."

Trees are the lungs of the earth.

I wish there was an easy solution to the human-every other species conflict (aka the destruction of our planet), but I don't believe there is. It's just sad that some of us can only make a living by degrading and destroying our environment (people like loggers, miners, etc...). Yes, these people could find other jobs, but often these are scarce especially during these times. of course if much less people were employed in these jobs then the impact would be much smaller and the ecosystems of the world would be able to heal, but this is not the case. we have nearly 7 billion brothers and sisters, and this is arguably the main cause of such HUGE disasters like climate change, deforestation, and sometimes war! This is something that must be addressed much more than it is at present.

Money is the reason that people have to step over others.

Because of money:
- Governments and corporations refuse to quit oil and use better and cheaper technologies.
- Forests are destroyed.
- Air is being systematically polluted
- Furry mammals are skinned alive.
- Farm animals are confined for their entire lives.
- Vegetables are poisoned.
- Labs use animals to experiment.
- Indigenous people is harassed, displaced and even killed.

The list goes on and on.

We should attack the causes, not the symptoms.

The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated.

"Die Größe eines Volkes und seine moralischen Fortschritte können daran gemessen werden, wie es seine Tiere behandelt."

Those who are cruel to animals cannot be righteous human beings.

Wer gegen Tiere grausam ist, kann kein guter Mensch sein.
