Caption: The more we fail to tend to our own back yard and instead manage other peoples problems, the more out of control things get..because we don't experience the repurcussions of our actions if someone else is taking care of them. Assuming someone else is taking care of those problems puts the problems further out of our view...we need to be more responsible for overseeing our own stuff or overseeing the mangement of our stuff by others.

Caption: The grayness of pollution survives the collapse of the Soviet Empire in Eastern Europe, with its intellectual and spiritual grayness. How many years of renewing rains can wash away the atrocities of the past? When will the downstream confluences be cleansed?

Caption: We are living inside the physical waste of our collective human intellect, where we have hidden from, forgotten about, and are seldom reminded of, the divine.

Caption: the rhythm of destruction
Caption: I think men are vain in their ideals that we can control the earth. I cannot believe that we as a species will ever see our creations cover all of the earth. When has man ever conquered an ocean, stopped the rotation of the earth, controlled a hurricane, stopped a volcanic erruption, controlled which way the wind blows or even predicted an earthquake. If we can't control these individual things how can we say we can control and conquer the whole. If nature ever decides to extinguish men, who could stop her? Bruce Willis and a team of actors? VAIN!!!!

Caption: just a view of generations of industrial buildup, nothing special. Too bad we don't plan better.
Caption: There is only so much of it and it's not growing. And, it's burden is increasing ever so fast. It gives us so much without any complaint ...just like our mother would. The least we can do is show some respect and keep it healthy so that it can care for more of us for long time to come.

Caption: The image makes me think how arrogant we are as humans in relation to the globe and how disjointed our thinking is on the environment. What a great topic to study with photography! I have often wondered the same thoughts looking down during air travel.

Caption: I am disheartened, frightened, and surprised by how little many people seem to care about the impact we have upon the earth, and as a result upon ourselves. My children have been brought up to care for our surroundings, but just as many peoplethrow trash out the window of their SUV right in front of their kids. Will we learn in time to save the world I know?

Caption: We are only ground soldiers in the evolutionary war. We do nothing TO nature. All we do IS natural. We do nothing outside of evolution, we are just acting our part, expand and consume. Man dose not decide this, evolution does. Sad as it is...

Caption: Please forgive us Mother earth, for we don't see further than our nose. Who are we to think that this planet belong to us? I'm sorry to say but with this government of power and money, we are going backward and who is suffering? the little people, us.
Caption: We are either a higher order animal capable of logical thinking and constraint unlike mindless bacteria which only live to expand, destroying the host and blindly and ultimately destroying ourselves., Or we are a higher order failure smart enough to tamper with nature but not restrain causeing a speedy demise. All the passengers in a speeding vehicle must attempt to stop the drunken driver or allow him to keep the wheel and share his fate. We must stop it all now, a national strike (see ghandi) and soon! Darwin's theory is at work here, wake up and act.
Caption: I too am disheartened. I'm really disgusted with the way Washington plays politics with the enviorment. Mankind is headed down the wrong path, we can't continue nor can the Earth support constant growth (look what happened to the people of Easter Island). We have finite resourses. We have to switch to a sustainable fuel source ( hydrogen gets my vote ). If we can accomplish just that little thing......I would feel hope.

Can we do anything really progressive, or are we just worthless and doomed?

Caption: It amazes me that parents will protect their children from so many dangers while ignoring the fact that we are destroying our planet. There's a strange passivity and acquiesence in our supposedly strong and independent country.
Caption: The earth sings a song of agony and discomfort. And no matter how loud we try to block reality with tv, computers or movies, there will come a time when that softly sadning song will be the last melody we hear before humanity's death bed... out extintion. Will evolution comfort our souls as we try to remember all the excuses we had for contributing in diging our graves. We only live once, and our genes are carried for decades to come.... What kind of world would you not only wish, but work to achieve...

Caption: It reminds me that there's an enormous majority of people out there who either don't care or are ignoring the growing wasteland and proliferation of ugliness. This is the one area where liberties should be curtailed and human endeavor forced into symbiosis with nature--our habitat.

Caption: We must remember that we live in a biosphere where everything is connected and dependent on everything else.

Caption: Another example of how out of control the human mind is..The part of the human mind that creates has been shut off. The power to jump toward the divine is in our minds. yet we seem to run the other way.
When will we start listening to our hearts instead of the cold hard cash, that seems to constantly jingle in our heads.
This planet cannot take much more of this abuse..We have started the process of cutting ourselves off from the rest of nature. The worst part of it is: this is only the start... things are liable to get worse before or if they ever get better.

Caption: Man, that is it. It does not go beyond that.
We are the creators and by the same token the destroyers. So foolish and so much lack of reasoning to still be thinking and pleading to non-existing deities. A long way has been since the first bacterias, how much to go...?
