The earth is not our possession. It is not ours. We do not own it. We are simply the caretakers for this beautiful, variegated earth. We share it with God’s other creations. But we reneged in our duty to the earth. We have raped it, abused it and killed many of its creatures mercilessly for pleasure or entertainment or profit. The more we advance technologically, the more we seem to lose our souls, our humanity.
In this book I would like to look at how we came to such a state that even nature has rebelled against our misuse of the earth.
This book looks at the relationship between man and the environment and our betrayal of our duty to the environment. It shows how we have degraded and hurt and harmed that which we were to protect and care for.
This book shows comprehensively the close relationship between man’s actions and the reaction of the environment to those actions. It also has some suggestions as to how we can at least try to undo the harm we have caused. It is about the rape of the earth – pollution, landfills, killing of the animals, fish, fowl, desecration of nature etc.
