Happy Earth Day!

Yes, it's time for humans everywhere to be HYPOCRITES again!


Don't we realize that EARTH is the only home we have?


Are we just plain CRAZY or what?


Our priorities are TOTALLY upside down.


It is Earth's TRAGEDY to be populated by such destructive creatures as humans.


But WTF, who cares? So long as everything is CONVENIENT!


WE'RE the top of the food chain, goddammit! WE'RE not just another part of life on this planet!


It's all EARTH'S fault, not ours. That bitch!


Listen to those who REALLY know what's going on!


Just you wait and see who's RIGHT!


In our ARROGANCE, we fail to see the truth.



The best thing for Earth would be if WE weren't here.


SOME people are counting on being able to just fly away in spaceships to colonize another planet if we destroy the Earth. But NOT EVERYONE shares that enthusiasm . . . .


Be afraid, little planet. Be VERY afraid.

Happy day to Mother Nature!

Adam said...

I remember a lot of eco earth day stuff when the holiday would come around in elementary. A lot of years I don't notice it go by.

I have to admit, compared to the pollution in China, we're hippies.

We're the NEW and IMPROVED lemming: a suicidally homicidal species which takes every other life form with us in our suicidal plunge.
We're so generous.

Happy Earth Day. After class I am off to the park to savor what beauty is left of it.

This was a great post. The last picture made me laugh. Or cry. Or both.

Green Monkey said...

thank you for the reminder. it is FRIGHTENING to think of the consciences of our gluttony. I have appointed myself queen of the river that flows through my backyard. I clean up debris that landscapers dump near its bank and I turn in the ones who don't have a license to spray chemicals. I don't see a big change but I keep plugging away. across from me is what was once a felt mill and back in the day, when they dyed the felt the river would turn that color. Imagine that... just allowing the toxins to run off into the river.

Mary said...

You are absolutely correct! Excellent post. But I still want to say Happy Earth Day, because I still hold some hope...

Leeanna said...

I wish people would wake up, listen and learn. This is the only home we have. Stop trashing it.
Great post by the way dear.

Dr. Theda said...

Human Nature... as long as there is to Money to be made ( regardless of its effects on the environment) humans will continue to destroy this planet...
Sad but True....
They have no concern for the the shape of this world for future generations...

Perfect post. Happy Earth Day! I try to do my little part, but most days I am embarassed to be human. I will continue to ride my bike, do my part and pray that we fix our Mother.

Birdie said...

An excellent post.

Jim said...

May we all learn to celebrate our Earth!
Very good post, Debra. Thank you.

Miss Val's Creations said...

A great way to put humor on a serious topic! The quotes are perfect.

JACKIESUE said...

I've always said that we're not going to destroy the earth..we will destroy mankind and the earth will get along just fine without us.

Plowing Through Life (Martha) said...

Great post, Debra! I love this. Humans suck. And I hope our species never colonizes another planet. Yes, be VERY afraid, little planet.

Guillaume said...

happy Earth Day! I blogged about it myself, commemorated it with a Pink Floyd song.

Fundy Blue said...

It's hard not to be discouraged, Debra. When you look at the fossil record you see a lot of species that spread wildly and then were gone. I'm afraid nature's going come back at us. Probably in a pandemic.

Linda said...

Hi Debra.....
Kudos on a great post....
We are kinda stupid,eh?
Cheers!
Linda:o)

Dixie@dcrelief said...

I am very grateful to have the community I live in. We're very much aware and active in protecting water rights, streams, ponds, animals... and the 184 acre forest that we help tend.

Kamyria said...

Ha ha ha the best post ever Debra! One day the Earth will shake us off like a nasty little bug we really are.

JACKIESUE said...

sorry about the Jets. I was pulling for them, but not enough.

The Happy Whisk said...

The memory box tugged at my heart strings.

We had a snow storm for Earth Day. Still out there, stuck on the back deck, too.

PS:Two days in a row, no nap.

Riot Kitty said...

Sad but true. I love the line about activism vs. terrorism.

Rawknrobyn.blogspot.com said...

Haha, I like "I'm with stupid." It's true - in a sad and funny way.

Magaly Guerrero said...

The image of the Earth looking at old pictures nearly broke my heart... As a species, we are "Stupid" indeed... ;-(

Ol'Buzzard said...

You might take a look at Elizabeth Kolbert's book The Sixth Extinction. Well written - well documented. There have been five major extinctions on earth and we are now in the midst of the sixth... totally the responsibility of mankind.

Rommy said...

Sad, but very true. And the planet will go on just fine after we're done killing ourselves. *sigh*

John M said...

This si so true.

Missy George said...

Sad but true..We've done a ton of irreversible damage..So sad that so many animals are extinct. Great post..

miruspeg said...

Deb I wonder if we humans will ever wake up before it is too late.
Excellent post.
Namaste

psychelyn said...

That sequence of pictures "I'm with stupid and 100% plastic" is downright true. That print explains how stupid some people are.

Shame in those who don't give a dang on climate change.


Dexter Klemperer said...

All very true; however, I find the idea of polar bears versus sharks rather tantalizing. Maybe that will be the next Sharnado sequel.

bill lisleman said...

especially like that last one - it's going on pinterest
