Check out this short but powerful video from Conservation International, one of a series on the same theme called Nature is Speaking.
Moving away from the familiar,emotionally charged images of endangered snow leopards and chopped down rain forests, this and the rest of the series takes an altogther harder line;
Nature doesn’t need people . . . but people need nature.
Julia Roberts speaks as Mother Earth, and one line in particular is especially brutal, socking you in the stomach with a dose of awful reality:
“I have fed species greater than you, and I have starved species greater than you. My oceans. My soil. My flowing streams. My forests. They all can take you, or leave you.”
A must-see for everyone who cares about out planet. And even more so for those who don’t.
