In the early spring of 2000 I had the good fortune to be in the Bay Area
of California and got to see the redwoods in the Big Basin
couldn't help but feel that these trees were created to benefit mankind.
It seemed that many of the trees could have served as a shelter. As can
be seen in the pictures below many of them are
hollow and could shelter
a family for a night or longer. Many of
these trees are over two
thousand years old. Thousands of them
were cut in the name of progress.
It is an absolute sin to kill
something over a thousand years old. Every time
one of them is
cut we loose a part of ourselves.
In the links section of my site there are groups that
work to save
the forests of the world. I do not ask people to donate
money but I
would ask that you support one of them, be it with
or by promoting them in some way. If we loose what is left of
the Redwoods and the rest of the worlds forests how can we hope to survive.
For to solve all the problems with the environment is a
Do Nothing, just leave everything alone and nature
will repair the damage. If we as a people can't stop killing and
destroying the environment by just leaving them alone how can we hope to
the problems that indeed require action.
