A CURSE ON OUR MOTHER EARTH




Please, visit the site for the poem. Text on Picture is not visible here.
NOTE: I wrote this poem on 31st January, 2005- 14 years ago. Sir David Attenborough wrote this recently(2018):
Sir David Attenborough warns that humans are 'a plague on the Earth'
The 86-year-old broadcaster said the negative effects of climate change and population growth would cause disaster within next 50 years.

He told the Radio Times: "It's coming home to roost over the next 50 years or so. It's not just climate change. It's sheer space, places to grow food for this enormous horde. Either we limit our population growth or the natural world will do it for us, and the natural world is doing it for us right now.

"We keep putting on programmes about famine in Ethiopia - that's what's happening. Too many people there. They can't support themselves - and it's not an inhuman thing to say. It's the case.

"Until humanity manages to sort itself out and get a co-ordinated view about the planet, it's going to get worse and worse."

Sir David is a patron of the charity Population Matters, which aims to limit population growth through programmes such as contraception drives.
