23. There should be a global urgency but there isn't.

I don't know if it's because human beings are that short-sighted, in denial, or just don't care. There shouldn't be ANYTHING more important to us than this singular issue, yet when presented with the data, people ignore or mock it. Maybe because the severity of what we're facing is just too horrible?

The Earth is a magnificent place, rare and unique, at least in our known corner of the galaxy. WE are a part of it - what happens to it happens to us too. Yet instead of understanding this and being caretakers, we are inflicting harm and thus bringing about our own destruction in the process.
