I have just discovered Googles' Official blog, and came across this posting (thanks Diana for your e-mail :) )
If this doesn't illustrate the detrimental effect that mankind is having upon this planet, then what does?
Also, fascinating to see the changing water level in the Las Vegas Urban Growth - proof positive of how man's urban growth is affecting precious water supplies / storage. If man was meant to live in "huddles" (town's and cities / mega cities) then why did God give us this entire planet to inhabit?
We owe it to Earth to help heal the damage we have caused - and we can do it one person at a time. It's just a mindset - are you willing to change your mind / habits?
