“You hear it every day.
“The ice caps are melting.”
“Two hundred species are going extinct every 24 hours.”
“The rain forests are being DECIMATED at unthinkable rates.”
“Genetically modified plants are spreading outside of their plots and entering our food supply with unknown consequences.”
We’re pillaging the planet of resources, killing the incredible beings that live here, poisoning the oceans, increasing global temperatures and jeopardizing our own livelihoods …
… and yet …
NO ONE SEEMS TO CARE!”
The last couple hundreds years have taken a toll on the planet. Mankind’s search for himself has transformed his relationship with the planet to a relationship with his Ego. The battle for power, control and money has led to poverty, depression, death, chaos, sadness and a planet that is dying. All we need is to do is look outside our window to see that the green, pure Earth that once was will be no longer if we do not change our attitudes.
Can we not see how alive the earth is?
That just like us her waterways are her veins; her inner core is her heart; her fertile soil is her skin; that every root underneath our feet is connected like a network.
Free flowing rivers have been blocked by damns, blocking the life force of water to irrigate our crops turning our lands into deserts. Not to mention the hundreds of thousands of fish that travel the waterways contributing to the maintenance of them.
Entire forests have been eradicated, killing off the very species that help to create it. Now skyscrapers and parking lots stand where once mighty Oaks lived.
Chemicals fall from the skies killing trees, animals, birds and ourselves.
Much needs to be done to heal the Earth, but choosing to stop supporting the holocaust of hundreds of thousands every day and the destruction of the Earth, can have a ripple effect that begins this healing process.
A plant-based diet would reap thousands of benefits on the planet and avoid damaging effects to the planet.
Factory Farms or CAFOs (Concentrated Animal Feeding Operations). Mans hunger and ego has led him to believe that he is above other species that live here. This has led to the maltreatment of humans and animals alike and large commercial operations of factory farming. Factory farms have a devastating effect on the environment for several reasons.

This is a non-commercial attempt from http://www.sanctuaryasia.com/ andhttps://www.facebook.com/sanctuaryasi… to highlight the fact that world leaders, irresponsible corporates and mindless ‘consumers’ are combining to destroy life on earth.
It is dedicated to all who died fighting for the planet and those whose lives are on the line today. The cut was put together by Vivek Chauhan, a young film maker, together with naturalists working with the Sanctuary Asia network (http://www.sanctuaryasia.com/).
