The World

When I look at the world, something I do on a regular basis, it scares the crap out of me. I sit back and wonder, what have we done? And can we reverse the damage the Earth's incured during our stay here? The big picture isn't very reassuring.

According to science, which is what I believe in, the Earth has been around for 4.5 billon years. That's a long time to me. But then I think about humans.

Humans as they look today have only been around for 200 thousand years. That's only a blink of an eye in the grand scheme of things. And then I think, look how much we've messed things up in that time!

It baffles me.

And leaves me confused over what we will do in the next 100 years.
