We are not responding as a society to the harm that we do. Human response mechanisms are numbed. We have forgotten how to listen and interact with nature and the other species on this planet. Pretty soon she (nature) will cry no more, and then it will be too late.
There are only between 10-25,000 Blue whales on the planet. Our plastic production completely dwarfs the awe and beauty of nature. It’s hard to realize the scale and scope of the destruction of our current system sitting from one perspective, but taken as a whole globally, it is frightening.
