the planet is doing great

Razvan Exarhu a scris din nou ceva ce m-a dat pe spate (un pic, asa): despre falsa grija a lumii pentru lume. Nu vrem sa salvam omul din noi / de langa noi, in schimb avem centura neagra cu 10 dani la selectionat deseurile si salvarea lui Fram, ursul polar.

Am gasit, apoi, un comentariu misto care citeaza un stand-up comedian, George Carlin:

“The planet is fine. Compared to the people, the planet is doing great. Been here four and a half billion years. [..] The planet has been through a lot worse than us. Been through all kinds of things worse than us. Been through earthquakes, volcanoes, plate tectonics, continental drift, solar flares, sun spots, magnetic storms, the magnetic reversal of the poles…hundreds of thousands of years of bombardment by comets and asteroids and meteors, worldwide floods, tidal waves, worldwide fires, erosion, cosmic rays, recurring ice ages…And we think some plastic bags, and some aluminum cans are going to make a difference? The planet…the planet…the planet isn’t going anywhere. WE ARE!”
