Just a few budgerigars in the Great Sandy Desert
And just a few more.
Here in Western Australia we look after all our old stuff.
Old Growth forests are protected by Law – unless they are needed by woodchippers
Old buildings are kept in pristine condition. Unless a developer wants them
However I have finally found something old which we do revere.
Old Growth Concrete.
Walking along the river path in my home suburb, Maylands.
There is a lot of beauty at this time of the year.
Then I saw this!
Then I saw a tree which has not washed its feet
That made me
There is a big warning brought to you by;
The same people who gave you the computer.
The same people who gave the world the atomic bomb
The same people who put the digital watch on your wrist.
The same people who wiped smallpox from the face of the Earth.
The same people who gave baby incubators to hospitals.
The same people who gave you Sputnik and world-wide communications.
The same people who gave you the vaccines which save millions of lives every year.
The same people who create the highest buildings in the world.
The same people who created the aircraft in which you fly.
The same people who gave you organ transplants.
The same people who gave you electricity.
The same people who build the bridges you drive over.
The same people who save lives by exposing the dangers of smoking.
The same people who gave you airconditioning on a hot day.
The scientists and engineers who train for years.
The people you trust with your life every day.
Yet you deny these same people when thay warn you of Climate Change.
Yet you deny these same people when they warn you that civilisation is at risk.
Yet you deny these same people when they warn that humans may go extinct.
And you won’t be around to apologise to your great grand children!
