-- James Ph. Kotsybar

In the millenniumís first dozen years,
they say weíre headed for a tipping point --
a disastrous sum of many fears
when Nature herself will crash and disjoint.
Itís not the Aztec calendar thatís cause,
nor the Sunís circumstantial alignment,
but our careless consumption without pause
and our uncontrolled wholesale consignment.
Our survivalís not a dress rehearsal.
We are fast approaching the precipice
where it will be too late for reversal.
Earthís ecosystem hangs over the abyss.
If youíre reading this and claim you donít care,
we don't need to wait; weíre already there.

I would not agree that extinction is for ever. Earth by inherent value has something unique to create and nourish , a god given gift which can not be separated. Nodoubt, man has, over the years done enough harm for existence and also continuing the process which no one can stop.Mother earth, would whatever damage it encounters, emerge and start giving. As she experienced these devastations and calamities in the past, would also survive to cradle living beings.In this period, the extent of severity of damage no body knows so that who survives and how long it takes to come to normality is the question. But for the present, one should be prepared for the worst.
