About two hundred thousand years (200,000) years ago, the first human being stepped on the face of this beautiful planet Earth and since then his rivalry with Mother Nature has continued.
Let’s take a tour from the beginning to this day and see how the human race has committed violent crimes and atrocities against Mother Nature.
In the beginning, man learned to plow and cultivate and benefited from the Earth. But soon his violent nature took over and he began killing other animals and species for food. This was just the beginning. Moving further in time, we see that man began to cut down trees and, therefore, to find a new way of damaging the environment. But all of this did not cause any permanent damage, as the Earth was constantly replenishing it.
Now, moving through the pages of history and traversing the Stone Age, the Bronze Age, and the Iron Age, we come to the dawn of modern society. When the first chimney was raised on the face of this Earth, when the first factory was installed, the same day that the death of the environment began, the exact same day that nature began to count its last breaths.
Now if we look back and see how much damage we have done in the last three or four hundred years. We are solely responsible for degrading the ecosystem, destroying the ozone layer and causing global warming. We are not only destroying nature, we are also threatening our very existence.
Hundreds of species of animals and plants have become extinct and some are on the brink of extinction, but what do we care? All we care about is having a comfortable life even if it means destroying the entire planet.
Nature is the best companion and we are destroying our best companion for material things. As someone said, “there is pleasure in the pathless forests, there is ecstasy on the lonely shore, there is a society where no one intrudes, because of the deep sea, and music in its roar; I do not love man less, but nature more. Nature does not rush, but everything is achieved. Nature always wears the colors of the spirit. “
It is not yet too late and things have not yet gotten out of hand. We may not be able to give back all that we have taken from this planet, but we may be able to stop the damage that has been occurring. We can probably never make it up to Mother Nature, but we can do something to cover up our crimes.
There are around 7 billion people living on this planet and if each person plants a tree, 7 billion trees will be produced worldwide. This may be a small initiative and it could be a drop in the bucket, but it would still be something.
So let’s take a vow that we will do everything in our power to stop violence against nature and plant as many trees as we can so that our future generations can breathe fresh and pure air. It is time to give back what we have taken from the environment and do something good for this planet.
