-- by Horatio Algeranon
The earth doesn't care if we drive a hybrid
Use wind power and recycle stuff.
She doesn't care if comsumptive humans
Ever say "Enough's enough".
She's been 'round the block a billion times,
Weathered hurricanes, been hit by rocks.
You think she cares about a little warming
And all this alarmist enviro-talk?
The earth doesn't care if we kill our own species,
She has no interest in our plight.
Besides, she believes in the Constitution,
And suicide is a sacred right.
An article by George Will (The Earth Doesn't Care About what is done to or for it) reminds us once again that every insight of great thinkers like George Will and Nobel physics laureate Robert Laughlin is precious (and that Horatio does not have a monopoly on goofy writing).
