If, like me, you thought the current Pakistani flood was a natural disaster, think again.
This arrived today from my friend and Green activist Elizabeth Perey in Tasmania:
“I did not know about the deforestation of Pakistan, so assume at least some of you did not know either.” (Take the link).
Greed, and the corruption it creates, poisons everything. I posted this limerick a few weeks ago, but figure it’s worth another run!
"It's only one tree," so they say,
"It really is quite in the way!"
But, permission given
To every one livin',
Would leave the world bare in a day!
‘Think globally and act locally’ was never more urgent!
