Earth Day: coronavirus is real and so is climate change
Today is the 50th anniversary of Earth Day. Unfortunately, there is little to celebrate as the world undergoes an unprecedented crisis.
In the run-up to this Earth Day, we find that we may not have done enough as global citizens to celebrate.
We have polluted oceans, destroyed forests, depleted wetlands, suffocated our blue planet with polluted air, introduced more invasive species, overconsumed natural resources and, most importantly, have not done enough to change our behaviour.
As we have impoverished Mother Earth to a great extent, there is little to celebrate and much more to commiserate.
We continue to impoverish our planet and steal the future of our children and many generations to come.
