The BP Spew

The gulf oil spew is beyond a tragedy and an environmental catastrophe. It is a global devastation. The spewing oil is an overt message to humanity from the innate sentientness of Gaia, Mother Earth. The message is: “take what you need for you have stewardship over the earth, but take precautions that what you take will not harm the life and habitat of species that coincide with the nature's gift or all will suffer. Stewardship should be benevolent. Wanton accumulation is not.

Humankind has been continuously neglectful of the environment for decades. The modern era of science, the modern era of technology and the modern era of greed have advanced us into an era of arrogance and self-indulgence.

We think we are the only intelligent beings on the planet. We may have awareness and conscious reasoning, but there are other sentient species here that must endure our egotistical disregard of nature and they must suffer our haughty and conceited passion for accumulated wealth.

BP is not the singular cause. We are! We the users of planetary resources who care not for the planet, but only that we have enough for the immediate pleasures of life.

If we don’t start to work together for an environmental conservation and balance on our planet we will have no planet to balance.
