The world paints a grim picture of barren lands
and forests. Sadly, it is the work of human hands that deforestation
and other earth destroying actions are rising in pace; and the only one
who can halt all these activities are the humans themselves. How and
when to stop will be two of the questions that will need urgent
answers. If such acts will not be controlled, the earth could turn out
to be a wasted land in no time.
Perhaps the ones who dare cut tress and kill all else that inhabit them
can be named as the evils of our world. After all, no humane creature
can ever do such an obliterating act when he knows in his thoughts that
it is practically biological killing. Also, a sane mind wouldn't think
of harming anyone or anything. Only a monster can do insignificant
slaughter for the profit of oneself. You wouldn't want to be named that
monster, do you?
Deforestation For Profit
Everyday we see pictures over the internet and the television depicting
the wipe-out of forest lands. Did we ever get to question ourselves why
such things happen and who are responsible for these acts? Perhaps it
is not because we care less about what's happening; it's more of being
weak to even stop something this big from happening. But, remember,
huge things become possible even if they started small.
Deforestation is one means of earning a living. Yes, this is a sad
reality. Since the forest is home to many trees and other significant
resources, people have found it to be an avenue to make money. For
example, some of the furniture that we use at home have probably been
crafted from the forests. How does this happen?
Established furniture companies have been manufacturing their wooden
items, surprisingly via legal means, from forests. As to how they get
these permits, we do not know. But, one thing’s for sure, they've taken
a big cut on probably the biggest forests on the earth and right under
The other unfortunate thing is that some of the people who should be
the key caretakers of the earth allow them to happen. Given our
position, it is frustrating to be in a stand where you can do nothing
but sit down and wait for graver things to happen. All is not lost,
People must remember than even in small ways they can put a halt to the
continuing destruction of the earth. If everyone unites to support the
green movement, we might just stop these monsters from profiting from
our forests. Remember, it is not only unto them that the earth has been
entrusted, but to all others, as well.
Probably, stopping deforestation or reversing an already damaged land
is one of the hardest things to do. In reality, one has to be powerful
enough to get in control of the situation. However, if we render an
ample amount of support to the movements that fight against
deforestation and believe in the restoration of the earth, we can go
hand in hand with nature.
Try picturing this out: if each individual would contribute even a
small effort, there would be bigger possibilities that the earth will
be saved. No matter how small your labors may be, they would surely
mean a lot in the restoration of our disturbed natural resources.
