3. But, she's mad as hell at us.

We pollute the earth without regard.

We've lost respect for all others on our planet.

We're destroying our home.

4. You know, I say that but...

You are the solution, not the problem.

We have to love Mother Nature and she will take care of us. She always has.

It's just that our focus on profits over morality and ethics is having it's toll.

We're on a downward spiral.

We have to turn away from gods and government. As one, we need to turn back to nature.

5. yes

i wasn't disagreeing with you, i just favor a different approach...

"The life of a warrior cannot possibly be cold and lonely and without feelings
because it is based on his affection, his devotion, his dedication to his beloved.
And who, you may ask, is his beloved? This earth, this world. For a warrior there
can be no greater love. Only if one loves this earth with unbending passion can
one release one's sadness. A warrior is always joyful because his love is
unalterable and his beloved, the earth, embraces him and bestows upon him
inconceivable gifts. The sadness belongs only to those who hate the very thing
that gives shelter to their beings. This lovely being, which is alive to its last
recesses and understands every feeling, soothed me, it cured me of my pains,
and finally when I had fully understood my love for it, it taught me freedom.
Only the love for this splendorous being can give freedom to a warrior's spirit;
and freedom is joy, efficiency, and abandon in the face of any odds
That is the last lesson. It is always left for the very last moment, for the moment of ultimate solitude when a man faces his death and his aloneness. Only then does it make sense
(4,14,283-286)

7. Oh, how I wish everyone

your message is so good, too bad more people don't see it this way, I'm 80 yrs old and I have seen so many changes so bad for us and the earth. There use to be rabbits, raccoons, and other wild animals around our neighborhood now there are none, poisons spewed on properties to kill weeds and insects, guns all contributed to their demise.
I love trees but because leaves are treated as a problem so many trees are cut down.
In the 60s and 70s climate change, overpopulation, the rain forest being destroyed, electric cars, were talked about, as soon as the 80s came all was forgotten.
I wanted an electric car so much and was hoping the gasoline cars would become a thing of the past, I am so allergic to carbon monoxide
But things got worse and none of the problems were solved. Deregulation and wealth was so important this was the beginning of the end.

6. Mother Nature threw her best at me so far.

She ain't got me yet.

It's my own body I worry about. But the science is catching up...
