Like spoiled children who are handed everything without having to lift a finger we have used it all up and looked for more. But what if one day the larder was bare?
Evolutionists could say that it is the natural order of things just ticking along.
I am not going to argue with either one. Because no matter who is right we have been far too casual about our natural resources for far too long. If we expected that someone else would come along and fix the mess we "stewards" made that someone must be busy because they have not appeared.
Now when the resources are almost gone we are still denying there is a problem.

A reader has commented (see full text in comments below) that he does not believe that MAN (his emphasis) created this crisis. He seems to believe it to be a natural phenomenon. Whoa! Is he blaming it on a WOMAN; Mother Nature perhaps?
Unlike him arguing with mine, I will not argue with his position since being a woman I am naturally biased.
I do however stand firmly by my assertions that we are shirking our responsibility to use our resources with care.
Like Pete Seeger said:
One man's hands can't tear a prison down,
Two men's hands can't tear a prison down,
But if one and two and fifty make a million,
We'll see that day come round,
We'll see that day come round.
This "many hands" theory can apply to anything so take some action no matter how small or insignificant it may seem. You may not save the world from global warming but you will save some resources and save yourself a few bucks in the bargain on those hydro bills.
