The water they use for washing or cooking is polluted, fish is scarce and contaminated. Agricultural lands are unfit for cultivation. And the air is polluted by flaring or the burning of natural gas out of oil.

This planet one day will be an example in this galaxy's story book as a warning what stupidity, egooism and greed of humans can lead to:


I hope that this stupid race never will be allowed to leave Earth.

I am shamed to be a member of such a useless race

Large, multinational corporations prize profits over health and nature.

Shell must pay for the damage caused. But big corporations usually run free, and this is totally unfair.

Africa, the cradle of mankind, now beginning to show signs of becoming the grave. It's sadly ironic.

Stop thinking that a damage like this can be paid by money! If we allow that doing wrong can be paid by money, rich people and companies can do what ever they want.
