Destruction of Nature

March 01, 1992

I often think of how it must have been back in the days when the buffalo wandered the plains and wonder how our ancestors could have slaughtered them with such indifference to their posterity. What right did they have to destroy our national heritage? Then I look around at the global warming, the rape of the ocean fisheries and destruction of our forests at such an alarming rate that I wonder if future generations will look back on our ignorance and ask the same questions I have asked about our ancestors?
