THIS BORROWED EARTH

Preface


I am deeply saddened by the devastating stories and the tragic images in This Borrowed Earth. This remarkable book is a great place to start to find out more about what greedy, incompetent, short-sighted people are doing to me, to you, to our children, and to our fragile planet. It documents some of the “crimes against humanity” and shows and reminds us that we only have one planet to live on. 

Like a frog in a pan of water we have not noticed the effects of all this pollution until now, when we feel the water beginning to boil…. Aren’t we supposed to be custodians of this planet? Don’t we owe it to our children to leave them a world that they can live in safely and enjoy?

We must all try our very best to bring this madness to the attention of like-minded people and the public at large. This Borrowed Earth will serve as a wake-up call to all concerned citizens of this earth. If we don’t take heed, this unrelenting fouling of our “nest” will, without question, come back to haunt us now and in the future.
