In your opinion, how are we affecting our planet?
There are so many things affecting the planet right now and almost all of it is human caused. Too many to be named.
What solutions would you offer to stem the multiple problems we face vis a vis the destruction of our planet home?
I don’t know if there is an overnight solution or even a solution to the problems we are facing at all. It’s becoming more populated as we speak – a person dies while another is born (as the saying goes). Unless we humans become extinct overnight and let Mother Nature take reins of the civilizations we’ve built, there is no solution than to continue to do our roles to leave as small as a footprint during our existence on Earth.
Do you think it’s already too late and we could just do exactly as we’re doing now and things would turn out the very same?
Part of me thinks we’re too late because I feel like there’s not enough people in the world who are willing to do what it takes to preserve the environment. Like the people in my family, who insist on eating meat each meal, who doesn’t care how many animals and sea creatures get slaughtered along the way. I feel like there way too many people like that in the world right now and if these continues, I’m not seeing a good outcome for this planet.
Do you participate in things like “Arbor Day” (a U.S. Holiday dedicated to planting new trees) or Earth Day or Earth Month?
I do not celebrate any of those days. I think we should all live every day like it’s Arbor Day or Earth Day and not just on a particular day.
Is any of it important in the ‘Big Picture’?
Of course! It’s the domino effect. What we do now affects the future.
What can you personally do to participate in the “Clean Earth” movement?
I grow my own food, even through the winter. That black container near the upper left of the photo, that’s been my veggie supply over the winter. One can grow quite a bit in these fabric pots.
I’m also composting a lot of my food and garden wastes to help the landfill. I’ve also been trying to reduce the garbage accumulation in the house but there’s no convincing mom of doing that. She laughed at me when I told her what I’m doing, calling me a silly fool.
