We live in an era with real evidence that the future of our planet and all living forms is in serious jeopardy. Time is running out with very few options to safeguard against the looming mass extinction of all species.
To achieve a positive balance between people and nature, we need to establish and promote: institutional rights for nature; respect rules of harmony; and, create a suitable atmosphere to develop love and compassion for nature, especially in children, as some of the old cultures did.
Short-term economic and welfare benefits result in irreversible damage to nature and all existing forms. If the health and lives are compromised, economic benefits are short-sighted and will quickly become meaningless.
The right of nature to thrive and setting limitations on human activities will present an equitable atmosphere to nurture true love and compassion to the natural world; goals that should be accepted and respected globally. Such an undertaking will provide the counterweight to control damage and potentially reverse some of the past damage inflicted on nature.
In fact harmony with nature is essential now and it can serve up wisdom and love based on the laws of nature which ingrains social knowledge and behavior by recognition of personal and social responsibilities, and not just pay lip service to the cause.
