A suicidal species

If there was ever a suicidal species, it is us humans.

My recent forays into reading up on Climate Change has confirmed to me what I have long suspected – that we humans are short-sighted, self-absorbed, and suicidal in the extreme. The pictures being painted are quite scary. So much so that reading and seeing the inevitability got my heart palpitating and my stomach clutching in sheer panic and fear.

C’mon, we are supposed to be the most intelligent species on Earth !

Then why this inertia ? Why do we insist on this blindness ? What kind of denial are we in ?

All of us, like lemmings, rushing towards the abyss … taking with us, the rest of the world.
