Don’t ‘sweat’ the planet!

One frequently hears terms such as “Save the planet”.  That is manifestly wrong: this planet has survived incredible changes in its billions of years, and it is not threatened by our collective stupidly: our species is.

This point is not mere pedantry: it is an important aspect of understanding:

o Who/what we are

o Where we live

o How we survive

The great majority of species which have lived on earth are extinct, as ours will eventually be: our goal is to prevent this from occurring prematurely.
