Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like
Ran across this interactive shockfest over the weekend and thought I’d better raise the alarm. It’s called “Your Life On Earth — How you and the world have changed since you were born.”
Troubling enough that I, for example, have traveled more than 34 billion miles around the sun and that my heart has already beaten 2 billion times. That’s a lotta lub dubs. What bothers me more are facts like the one shown in the graphic above: In my relatively short lifetime, the earth has lost more than 1.5 billion acres in forest.
Now, I love trees. I happen to have a real thing for them. And since I now live in the thick of them, it saddens me to think we’re going to keep chopping them down until they go dodo. Not good.
