Planet in crisis

To the Editor:

Robert Shetterly of the website “Americans Who Tell the Truth” recently reminded me that while we are jerked from crisis to crisis, there is an overarching/underling crisis which, if it is not addressed, will make all the others moot. That is the degradation of our planet.

We must maintain a focus on our environment.

“Humankind has not woven the web of life,” Chief Seattle said. “We are but one thread within it. Whatever we do to the web, we do to ourselves. All things are bound together. All things connect.”

Earth will survive and cleanse itself but humankind may not be around to see the new Eden.
