I would love to believe the Gaia theory – that the planet is alive. It would be so nice.
Our mother the planet is weary of our destructive ways, the killing of her creatures, the pollution and destruction, she is shrugging her shoulders, seeking to rid herself of us and our wicked ways.
She has sent the Corvid-19 as a warning. Next time it will be the real thing and we will be gone.
I’d love to believe that but as a scientists I do not. But I do think this is a warning. It is time we learnt to be less destructive, to get along together and limit our numbers, or our time on this planet might be short.
